Second blogger killed in Bangladesh
Another Bangladeshi blogger has been hacked to death in the country’s capital Dhaka. Police arrested two suspects near the scene after the latest attack targeting atheist writers in the predominantly Muslim country.
Three men attacked blogger Washiqur Rahman Babu near his home in Bangladesh’s capital just weeks after a prominent Bangladeshi-American blogger Avijit Roy was killed by unidentified assailants.
The 27-year-old, who was attacked with machetes, was declared dead when he arrived at Dhaka Medical College Hospital early Monday morning (local time).
“Blogger Washiqur Rahman Babu was brutally hacked to heath this morning…just 460 meters (500 yards) from his home at Dhaka’s Begunbari area,” deputy police commissioner Wahidul Islam said.
