CANCEL NIGHT TRIPS * Bangladesh: By arson attacks

* Transport owners agree to cancel long-haul night trips

-- Long-haul transport owners yesterday agreed to a government directive not to operate any bus on highways after 9pm during the ongoing blockade until further notice... The directive was issued at a meeting yesterday evening in view of the recent spate of arson attacks that damaged hundreds of vehicles in different parts of the country... But the directive would not be applicable to freight transports, including trucks and covered vans... The government earlier identified 993 risky points on highways and decided to deploy 12,000 Ansar members there. BGB has already been deployed to ensure security on roads... Arson attacks on buses and trucks across the country have killed over 60 people since January 5 when BNP chief Khaleda Zia imposed the indefinite blockade...Transport owners agreed to follow the government order, they told reporters that security measures were not adequate at vulnerable points. We were earlier told that security would be beefed up but that actually did not happen, they said... (Photo: Loaded trucks at Bangladesh) - Dhaka,Bangladesh -Dhaka Tribune, by Shohel Mamun -7 Feb 2015
