A Bangladeshi policeman, left, catches a nap as another talks on the phone as they sit outside a commercial building during a half day strike called by Islamic political parties in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012. More than two dozen Islamic parties in Bangladesh want the country to be governed by Sharia, or Islamic law. A coalition of five leftist parties want the Islamic parties to be banned because they oppose the constitutional provision that says Bangladesh be governed by secular law. (AP Photo/A.M. Ahad)
