Bangladesh's main opposition leader Sheikh Hasina Wajed has been charged with the murder of four people during political violence which racked the nation's capital last October, police said on Wednesday.

Hasina, who is on holiday in the United States, "has been charged with the murder of four people during the political unrest last October," police deputy commissioner Shahidul Haq Bhuiyan said.

"Detective branch police submitted the charge-sheet of the case to a Dhaka court today after carrying out investigations and taking evidence," said Bhuiyan.
