During the past 10 months, there have been more than 30 terrorist attacks in Bangladesh. In recent days, an Italian aid worker was gunned down as he went for a jog. Also shot to death was a Catholic priest. Two Hindu priests and a Buddhist leader were stabbed and hacked to death with machetes — the same fate meted out to Bangladeshi-American writer Avijit Roy last year. Bangladeshi gay activists, secular bloggers and academics have been murdered as well.
