Bangladesh arrests suspect in blogger, publisher murders


DHAKA: Bangladesh police said on Saturday they had arrested an Islamist militant leader wanted in connection with the murder of a blogger and publisher. Khairul Islam “directly took part” in the killings of Niloy Chottopadhay and Faisal Arefin Deepan last year, police said, two of the dozens of deadly attacks on secular activists and foreigners. Detectives nabbed the 24-year-old, an intelligence wing leader of the banned outfit Ansar al-Islam, also known as Ansarullah Bangla Team, from Dhaka’s main railway station late Friday.
