DHAKA, Bangladesh — The tension was palpable here as U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy R. Sherman led a delegation for the second U.S.-Bangladesh dialogue.
The talks began even as there was a citywide shut down called by an 18-party opposition coalition on Sunday. These shut downs are often characterized by not only protests but also the burning of vehicles and bombings.
