At least 15 people were killed in election-related clashes in Bangladesh on Sunday, local police officials told CNN.

Bangladeshis were voting on whether to give Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina a third consecutive term in an election marred by allegations of human rights abuses by her government.
The military was deployed across the country to try to prevent the violence seen during recent polls, which were tarnished by a low turnout and boycotted by the largest opposition group and its allies.
But nine people were killed in Chittagong division alone on Sunday, police official said.
