AA photoA branch of the U.S. presidential election campaigns is being held in the south Asian country of Bangladesh.
Many Bangladeshis are interested in the ongoing presidential campaign happening in the United States and have organized an event to show their support of Democratic candidate Barak Obama.
A group of Bangladeshi girls carried "Vote for Obama" placards on horse-drawn carriages on the streets of Dhaka, the capital of the country Dhaka.
"The U.S. is quite influential for the global economy. Obama's victory in the U.S. will bring prosperity to the world and to Bangladesh," a representative of Obama's campaign in Bangladesh, Akhterruzzaman Khan said.
Approximately 90 percent of the Bangladeshi population is known to be Muslim.
