DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - Police and protesters clashed for the second day on Wednesday, after the conviction of a powerful politician in connection with a series of killings during the country's 1971 independence war. More than two dozen small, homemade bombs also exploded in the country's north, but there were no reports of injuries.

Local news reports said at least 10 people had been injured Wednesday in clashes outside Dhaka, a day after the latest verdict was announced in a series of controversial war crimes trials. Street battles across the country Tuesday killed up to four people and injured dozens more.
