Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has just been re-elected for a fifth term in a vote boycotted by the opposition. Since she came to power in 2009, at least 600 people have disappeared, including opposition activists, businessmen and members of the student wing of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, according to Human Rights Watch. Families are demanding information about those they believe were abducted by security forces.
