• Teachers' protest continues

    TEACHERS from the university to the primary levels have been agitating for over a month. In the background of the World Teachers' Day that was observed yesterday, we feel sorry to see the way teachers at public schools, colleges and universities are treated in the country.

  • Still no headway in investigations

    It is of concern that little palpable headway has been made in the investigations of the killings of Italian aid worker Cesare Tavella and Japanese national Kunio Hoshi that took place within a span of five days.

  • Too many unauthorised hospitals

    The 'discovery' of yet another private hospital operating without proper authorisation accentuates the worsening conditions of the health services in the country.

  • A trigger happy MP

    A minor boy in Sundarganj of Gaibandha was shot and wounded in both legs, reportedly by a local member of parliament, on Friday.

  • Yet another foreign national murdered

    We are aghast at the killing of yet another foreign development worker on Bangladeshi soil, only five days into the murder of an Italian citizen in Dhaka. The Japanese national, Kunio Hoshi, was shot dead in Mahiganj area of Kawnia Upazila, reportedly in the same manner as Cesare Tavella.
