About 25 people were injured when an express train heading for Dhaka was derailed on the outskirts of the Bangladeshi capital by opposition activists during a transport blockade Saturday, witnesses said.

The blockade was part of an opposition campaign to force Prime Minister Khaleda Zia to step down and allow elections Feb. 7 to be supervised by a neutral authority.
