Bangladesh protest

A Bangladeshi protestor stands alone, as policemen fire tear gas shells and use water cannon to disperse protestors demanding cancellation of a plan for a massive coal-fired power plant near ecologically sensitive mangrove forests on the coast in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017.
