The night of January 11. The nation holds its breath. Telephones ring off the hook as people desperately attempt to comprehend the enormity of the occasion. No one knows exactly what is happening. Emergency has been declared. Curfew from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am has been imposed. An ominous and uneasy silence descends as the nation waits in trepidation for the uncertainty to resolve itself. These pictures, taken from a Dhaka roof-top that night, capture the tension and apprehension of this anxious moment in our nation's history.
