Bomb blast near Eid congregation in Bangladesh; A policeman killed



One policeman was killed and several injured in an explosion on Thursday morning at the entrance of the Eid prayer gathering in Bangladesh’s Kishoreganj district after a group of suspected radical Islamist hurled homemade bombs.

The victim was identified as police constable Zahirul Islam.

One suspected attacker was also killed in the blast.

A bomb was hurled at the policemen in front of Azim Uddin High School at 9:30am on Thursday, leaving at least 13 people including several policemen injured.

The injured were sent to Myemensingh Medical College Hospital.

Calling it a terrorist strike, Bangladesh I&B Minister Hasanul Haq Inu said, "They are out to create disturbance. It is a political attack to topple & oust the secular government of Sheikh Hasina.”

The incident comes after last week’s deadly attacks in Dhaka which killed over 20 people mainly foreigners including an Indian girl.
