Muslims hack Buddhist monk to death in Bangladesh

A 75-year-old Buddhist Monk was found with his throat slashed, inside a monastery in Bangladesh. It’s the latest in a spate of grisly murders, including seven in the past month.

Police said the body of Maung Shue U. Chak was discovered Saturday morning when his daughter-in-law arrived to bring him food.

“Villagers found Bhante [monk] Maung Shue U. Chak’s dead body in a pool of blood inside the Buddhist temple this morning,” said Jashim Uddin, deputy police chief of Bandarban. “He was hacked to death.”

It appears there were multiple attackers.
