• ISIS group claims killing of ‘preacher’ in Bangladesh


    DHAKA: The Islamic State group said Tuesday it killed a Bangladeshi who was hacked to death this week, describing the victim as a top Shiite preacher — a claim the country’s authorities reject. Police confirmed that the man named in an IS statement, Abdul Razzaq, was killed on Monday night but rejected the IS claim of responsibility. IS has claimed a series of killings in Bangladesh, but authorities deny that it has a presence there and instead blame local Islamist groups.
