The number of people killed in an anti-drug operation in Bangladesh has risen to 77, after the death of another nine suspected drug-traffickers. Officials said in Dhaka today that the latest nine deaths occurred in gunfights with the police in different districts.

According to Rapid Action Battalion of Bangladesh police, 3,300 people have been arrested during the campaign and 2,795 drug dealers and users have been handed fines or jail terms in trials in mobile courts.
