Bangladesh's PM Secures Another Term After Disputed Election

Bangladesh's prime minister and her party will remain in power.

During the country's national election Sunday, Sheikh Hasina  secured her third straight term .

And her ruling Awami League party scored nearly all of the 300 contested parliamentary seats.

The opposing Bangladesh Nationalist Party only won a handful of seats.

It denounced the election results, accusing the Awami League of rigging the vote.

But Hasina denied the opposition's claims, and election officials said there won't be a new vote.

Sunday's election was also marred by violent clashes between supporters of the ruling and opposition parties.

Authorities say at least 17 people were killed during the vote.
