DHAKA, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- Ex-prime minister Khaleda Zia's 20- party opposition alliance on Tuesday announced to extend its ongoing 72-hour nationwide strike till Friday morning in protest against political repression.


Khaleda Zia's Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) spokesperson Salahuddin Ahmed made the announcement in a press release on Tuesday, saying the alliance decided to extend its ongoing 72-hour strike by 48 hours protesting what it said killing party men in the name of shootouts http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-alexander-volkov-jersey , mass arrest of leaders and activists, controls on media and the ""government interference in judiciary"".


The BNP and its allies on Saturday declared the 72-hour road, rail and waterway strike from Sunday morning amid its ongoing blockade campaign that entered the 43rd day on Tuesday.


The opposition alliance has been observing the nonstop blockade across the country since Jan. 5, demanding fresh elections under a non-party caretaker government system.


On top of its blockade campaign, the BNP and its 19 allies including key Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami party have been observing strike at regular intervals since the last month.


The fresh wave of violence has left scores of people dead and hundreds of others injured.

" Going to Paris? Sooner or later you may. Once there, steer clear of the typical Parisian landmarks. Follow in the footsteps of Phil http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-alex-killorn-jersey , the Senior Editor of a well-known Paris travel guide. Take a peek at out-of-sight places few outsiders know. Amazement guaranteed.


Every Paris travel guide seems to have something to add to the already voluminous information available on such well-known spots as the Louvre and Orsay museums, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Eiffel Tower.

Yet what about discovering the quaint neighborhoods of the 19th century Paris? Or taking pictures of the inn built for the paupers by Nicholas Flamel in the 15th century (yes, that's the same Nicholas Flamel written about in Harry Potter)?

In my reckoning, there's a truly interesting way of discovering Paris, and that's to take the less traveled path. The one I take with my friends when we visit the French capital.

So http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/ , let's assume you are as eager as we are to learn something new about Paris, and let's take a peek at just two of its less-well-known jewels. The next time you take the trip to Paris, you'll be the one leading the way!

The Lutece Arena, a return into time

Before Paris became Paris, the city was the capital of the territory occupied by the Parisii, the Gallic tribe after which Paris will take its name in the 4th century A.D. There is some controversy about the original Celtic name of the city http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-yanni-gourde-jersey , but when the Romans invaded it in 52 B.C. under Emperor Julius Caesar, they called it Lutecia (or Lutetia).

In the 2nd century A.D., the Romans built in its middle an amphitheater of about 25,000 square feet, which could hold about 16,000 spectators. During the next century http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-vladislav-namestnikov-jersey , gladiator fights and other less palatable games (e.g. offering early Christians for lunch to beasts of prey) were held for the benefit of the local Roman population.

With the fall of the Roman Empire, such games became much less popular, and as Christianity became the State religion, man-eating events ceased to be held altogether.

The arena was demolished during the barbarian invasions of 280 A.D., and the site later became a cemetery. In the late 12th century, the ruins were buried under a large rampart built to defend Paris. They remained forgotten until 1869 when they were unearthed to the greatest surprise of all historians.

At the time http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-vincent-lecavalier-jersey , the City Council decided Paris did not have the funds necessary to excavate and preserve the antique discovery, and the development project which had dug out the ruins was green-lighted.

Later on, in 1883, the site was repurchased and rehabilitated under the guidance of French novelist Victor Hugo (author of 'Les Miserables'). A further rehabilitation project began in 1916 which unearthed the site completely. Vicious attempts at taking over the site and destroying it by unashamed, greedy, low-life real-estate developers were thwarted by the local dwellers in 1980.

How do you get to see this beautiful place which http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey , to this day, still remains 'stealthy'?

Orient yourself on a map, take the subway to the 'Monge' station, and walk to No. 47 Rue Monge. Enter the hallway, walk along the corridor and there you are! Right on the sandy ground of the arena where ghosts of ferocious lions still roam in search for a human prey!

A guaranteed, amazing leap in the past http://www.tampabaylightningteamstore.com/adidas-tyler-johnson-jersey , just short of 2,000 years ago!


The Botanical Gardens and their Alpine Garden

Now on to another amazing curiosity which is sure to tickle the interest of our plant-loving friends.

In 1640 A.D., under the reign of King Louis the 14th (the same king who presided over the development of the Versailles Palace), the Royal Garden of Medicinal Herbs opened its doors 'to the general public and students'. The project had been green-lighted in 1626 by King Louis the 13th.
