Bangladesh detained thousands in a crackdown on extremists, but the action drew widespread criticism because most detainees were accused only of petty crimes.
In other photos from around Asia last week, an 11-year-old Bangladeshi boy worked at a metal factory on World Day Against Child Labor. Indian Muslim students, meanwhile, practiced yoga ahead of International Yoga Day.

Chris Rock's 33-year-old girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke flashed a diamond ring on her wedding finger on Saturday evening while at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 party in New York City.
The timing is interesting as the next day the comedian finalized his divorce from wife of 20 years, Malaak Compton-Rock.
The ring - a yellow gold double band with a small diamond - could be an engagement ring. As PageSix revealed on Thursday, a friend shared a clear image of the ring and added it was time to celebrate 'new beginnings,' strongly suggesting the standup could be on his way to another marriage.
Bling it on! Chris Rock's girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke flashed diamond ring on wedding finger on Sunday the night before his divorce was finalized from wife of 10 years Malaak
'Last night we celebrated new beginnings . . . #lovewins,' the unidentified friend wrote in the caption.
The site pointed out Echikunwoke seemed to take a dig at Malaak when she replied 'Bye, Felicia,' which is a catchphrase that pretty much translates to 'don't let the door hit you on the way out,' only not as polite.
A friend added crying-laughter emojis.

The post was then taken down.
The beauty glowed as she held onto Rock, who was also in great spirits. She had on a lovely floral-print dress with spaghetti straps and her hair was worn down over her bare shoulders.
A source told PageSix, 'she always wears that ring,' which appears to be true as she has had it on several times in the past six months. They have been dating for one year and she lives at his New Jersey home.
The last one: Rock and Malaak back in 2014; they have two daughters together and have raised an adopted daughter as well
His rep then said Chris was '100 percent' not engaged.
On Monday Chris and Malaak both appeared in a New Jersey courtroom to finalise the split, reported TMZ.
The 51-year-old comic actor and his wife - who have been separated since 2014 -have two daughters Lola Simone, 14 and Zahra Savanna, 12.
Chris and Malaak Compton-Rock also appear to have been raising eight-year-old Ntombi, who first came to live with them from South Africa when she was six months old, according to the website, although details are unclear.
In divorce papers, Malaak listed Ntombi-futhi Samantha as a dependent along with the Rocks’ two biological daughters.

She stated that in addition to their two children, there is a child 'who has resided with the parties since before her first birthday.'
But rather mysteriously, a spokesman for Chris told TMZ he does not have an adopted child.

The site added that the girl's parents were thought to be unemployed and from South Africa, although it is not known why she was living with the Rock family.
They add that when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings, Chris maintained contact with his two biological daughters.
However their divorce case is sealed so it is not known what settlement was reached.
Meanwhile, Chris began dating actress Megalyn earlier this year. Megalyn, who has had recurring roles in 24, ER, CSI Miami, The 4400, 90210 and Damien, was most recently featured as the animal-powered Vixen in the TV series Arrow.
