A Bangladeshi man looks out from window of a garment factory in Ashulia, some 30kms north of Dhaka.  Hundreds of Bangladeshi clothing factories hit by violent protests this week by workers demanding higher pay look set for further industrial unrest unless conditions improve. Tens of thousands of workers who stitch clothes for top Western brands vandalised factory equipment and torched delivery vans this week, forcing riot police to respond with rubber bullets, water cannon and teargas. The hundreds of garment factories in the vast Ashulia industrial zone outside Dhaka closed temporarily, and now are rushing to meet orders for firms like Tesco, Wal-Mart and H&M -- but experts warn more violence is not far off.   AFP PHOTO/MUNIR UZ ZAMAN
