Police say two teenagers jumped to their death from a mobile phone tower in Bangladesh after the girl was forced to marry another man.

Police officer Sharmin said the boy called his brother and said the two were dying on Valentine’s Day to stay together forever. The teens tied their hands with a scarf before committing suicide today.

It happened in the town of Gopalganj, 104 kilometres (65 miles) southwest of the capital.
