Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has cancelled her upcoming official visit to New Zealand.
Her visit, scheduled between March 11-14, would have been the first ever by a head of government between the two countries.
A senior official at the foreign ministry told the prime minister cancelled the visit due to the current political situation.
The opposition BNP and its allies are enforcing a violent nationwide transport blockade and a series of shutdowns, marking the first anniversary of last year's parliamentary elections that it had boycotted on Jan 5.
More than 100 people have been killed, most of them in firebombing of public transport.    ?
