Activists with flaming torches shout during a street march in Dhaka on November 2, 2015. The night time protest was held in response to the recent murder of Faysal Arefin, a publisher of books by critics of religious militancy in Bangladesh, as well as the murders of secularist writers in Bangladesh in recent years.
