Five members of a family blow themselves up in Bangladesh
Five members of a family on Thursday blew themselves up to thwart police from storming their terror hideout in Bangladesh, the latest such incident amid an intensified nationwide crackdown on Islamist militants, according to a media report.
Before setting off the blasts in Rajshahi’s Godgari area, the terror suspects speared a fireman to death. Two policemen have been also injured in the incident, bdnews reported. Godagari police official Hifzul Alam Munshi was quoted as saying by the report that they surrounded the house at Benipur village early morning after intelligence inputs suggested presence of militants there.
