Islamic militants are believed to have hacked to death a Christian convert during a knife attack on a busy street in northern Bangladesh.
Hossain Ali was walking through Kurigram when at least two people jumped the 68-year-old victim. Eyewitnesses claim the men slashed Ali's neck.
Police believe the victim was on his regular morning walk when the killers jumped out at....
District police chief Tobarak Ullah said: 'He died on the spot. The attackers exploded a molotov cocktail to create panic and left the scene on a motorcycle.'
Last week the ISIS said it killed a Shiite convert from Sunni Islam in the southwestern town of Kaliganj.
In January an alleged Christian convert was also murdered by the same group.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government denied that ISIS has a presence in Bangladesh.
It blames the banned homegrown militant group Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh for the upsurge in deadly violence.
Bangladesh has been plagued by unrest in the last three years. Experts say a long-running political crisis has radicalised opponents of the government.
Shameful and Gruesome!
