Suspected Islamists kill Bangladesh police officer’s wife


CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh: Suspected Islamist militants killed the wife of a senior anti-terror officer in the Bangladesh city of Chittagong on Sunday, the latest attack thought carried out by local extremists, police said. Three unidentified men stabbed and then shot Mahmuda Begum in the head as she walked her son to a school bus stop near her home, Chittagong Metropolitan Police deputy commissioner Moktar Hossain said. Begum was the wife of Babul Akter who has led several high-profile operations against the banned Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) militant group in the southeastern city in recent months. Akter, who was recently posted to the police headquarters in Dhaka, has received threats and he was asked to step up his personal security.
