Deadly bomb blasts target Bangladeshi Shiites ahead of religious procession
A bomb attack at Dhaka’s main Shiite site has killed one person and injured nearly 80 more while they gathered for the Ashoura procession. The tragedy follows a similar attack in Pakistan that left 15 Shiites dead.
At least three small bombs on Sasturday were detonated outside the Huseni Dalan as thousands of Shiite Muslim worshippers gathered for the annual Ashoura procession, which marks the peak of holy month Muharram.
Shiites hold the Ashoura procession to mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Muslim Prophet Mohamed.
