Hindu priest is shot and hacked to death by Islamists in Bangladesh – but country’s home minister says ISRAEL is to blame for spate of murders

Although most of the recent attacks have been claimed by ISIS or the local offshoot of Al-Qaeda, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government has blamed its domestic opponents for the attacks.

Khan linked the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) to the attacks, saying they were part of a wider conspiracy that also involved Israel’s spy agency, Mossad.

‘These killings are part of a national and international conspiracy. Those who are carrying out these incidents are communicating with Mossad,’ Khan told AFP.
