• PM smells link of BNP-Jamaat

    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said it's the BNP-Jamaat nexus, not the Islamic State, that was behind the recent killings of a Japanese man and an Italian in the country. "The style of killings of these two foreign nationals are the same … These are planned murders ... I want to remind you of a BNP leader's remarks before and after the [Italian national's] murder. If you compare the two statements, the matter will become clear," she said at a press conference at the Gono Bhaban yesterday.

  • No clue yet

    The four people who had been detained by police for “questioning” in connection with Saturday's murder of Japanese national Hoshi Kunio did not return home as of last night.

  • US working to verify 'IS claim'

    The United States yesterday said it has taken seriously the reported Islamic State claims of killing two foreigners in Bangladesh.

  • Ensure security for foreigners

    The home ministry and the police headquarters have directed deputy commissioners and superintendents of police in all districts to beef up security for foreign nationals in their areas and maintain regular contact with them.

  • BNP mustn't be bracketed with Jamaat

    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's allegation that the BNP and Jamaat have links to the recent murders of two foreigners is “totally baseless”, said BNP acting secretary general Fakhrul Islam Alamgir last night.
