Islamists Take Aim At Bangladesh’s Liberal Bloggers (VIDEO)

Tensions are high in Dhaka, Bangladesh, as Islamists take to the streets.

They are protesting against prominent liberal bloggers, who accuse Islamist groups of failing to support Bangladesh during the country's 1971 independence war.

Sunday's protest was a counter blast on behalf of Islamists, who hold huge sway in Bangladesh politics.

One blogger was recently killed outside his home as pressure between the two sides mounts.
