Densely populated Bangladesh is located on a delta plain on the Bay of Bengal. After gaining independence in 1971, the country underwent 15 years of military rule, and though now governed by elected politicians, it remains politically volatile. Widespread abuse of human rights by government run security forces remain among the most high profile abuses in the country, including arbitrary and extrajudicial killings.
