The death toll in Bangladesh has reached 17, as anti-government street protests and violence continued for a ninth day on Wednesday.

In the latest round of violence, four people, including a child, were burnt alive when the bus they were travelling on was firebombed by anti-government protesters.
 
Day nine of the opposition-led indefinite blockade in Bangladesh saw more brutal violence.
  
Police said early on Wednesday, four people were burnt alive, including a child, in Mithapukur of Bangladesh's northern Rangpur district.
 
The deaths occurred when anti-government protesters torched a bus bound for Dhaka. The bus was carrying about 40 passengers. 
 
Eleven passengers were injured. 
  
The violence came after two people - including an opposition politician - were killed on Tuesday. Pro-blockade protesters have been randomly torching vehicles, in an attempt to disrupt road, rail and river transport across the country.
 
The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, led by former Premier Khaleda Zia, has been locked in a bitter confrontation with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Awami League. Zia ordered the blockade last Tuesday as part of a campaign push to force Hasina to stand down.
