Bangladeshi security forces have opened fire on textile workers protesting in pursuit of a higher minimum wage.
Police used batons, rubber bullets and tear gas on day five of demonstrations near the capital Dhaka.
Workers on a minimum wage equivalent to 28 euros a month, want their monthly income to rise to 74 euros.
The huge Bangladeshi garment trade has been under the spotlight amid deadly incidents including the collapse of a building housing factories in April that killed more than 1,130 people.
In the latest protests, workers are said to have dispersed after security forces moved in. Police did not provide details of the injuries sustained.
