Sheikh Hasina wins third term in Bangladesh elections marred by deadly violence

(CNN)Bangladesh’s Sheikh Hasina has won a third consecutive term as prime minister, the country’s Election Commission said Monday, in a poll marred by deadly violence and allegations of rigged ballots.

The opposition Jatiya Oikya Front has rejected the vote and demanded a fresh election, accusing Hasina’s ruling Awami League (AL) party of stuffing ballot boxes.
Her government has also been accused of human rights abuses during the election. At least 15 people were killed in election-related violence when clashes broke out between ruling party supporters and the opposition on Sunday, local police officials told CNN.
