Bangladesh has officially opened its longest bridge, linking the capital, Dhaka, and the southwest.
The nearly $4bn project suffered cost overruns and delays after the World Bank pulled funding following allegations of corruption.
The bridge was eventually funded domestically and built by China.
Al Jazeera’s @Tanvir Chowdhury reports from Mawa, Bangladesh.
