Bangladesh: Muslims Hack Blogger To Death – 4th This Year

DHAKA — Attackers armed with machetes killed a blogger in Bangladesh on Friday, the fourth killing of an online critic of religious extremism in the Muslim-majority country in less than six months.

Niloy Chatterjee, 40, a blogger who advocated secularism, was killed in his flat in the capital, Dhaka, said police official Mustafizur Rahman.

“We are speechless. He was demanding justice for killing of other bloggers,” said Imran Sarker, head of a network of activists and bloggers.

“Who will be next for demanding justice for Niloy?”
