Police in Bangladesh say they have arrested at least 10,000 people over the past few days in a major drive against criminal activity.
Leaders of the main opposition parties have complained that many innocent political activists have also been detained under the emergency laws.
Police chief Nur Mohammed said that this would be a month-long drive against crime.
The police, he said, are arresting those against whom there are specific allegations, cases or warrants - including smugglers and the owners of illegal arms.
Earlier he said that the force was targeting what he described as terrorists and extortionists. He denied that the arrests were in any way political, except that they are aimed at making Bangladesh more secure in the run-up to elections in December, when the army-backed Government has promised to restore democracy.
