DHAKA (AFP) - Gunfire erupted Friday between troops along the Myanmar-Bangladeshi border over a soldier Bangladesh alleges was shot by its neighbour's security forces and dragged over the frontier.

The clash broke out Friday afternoon after the man's body was not delivered back to Bangladesh's border police as expected, said Devdash Bhattacharya, police chief in the southeastern district of Bandarban.

"The Myanmar Border Police was supposed to return the body today (Friday), but we've just received reports that gunfire has erupted at the border," he said.

Mr Bhattacharya alleged the Myanmar Border Police took away the Bangladeshi soldier's bullet-riddled body after they opened fire on his patrol team along the border on May 28.
