Students at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) show their identity cards as they take part in a protest following a silent procession to demand the removal of the university's Vice Chancellor and Pro-Vice Chancellor in Dhaka July 15, 2012. Bangladesh aims to get the full picture on corruption in the education ministry by installing closed-circuit television cameras in its key offices in the capital to catch bureaucrats taking bribes for services.
