Bangladesh: Islamist militant group accused of blogger attacks banned
May 26 , 2015
Bangladesh has banned the Ansarullah Bangla Team, an Islamist militant group believed to be behind the murder of three bloggers this year.
The secular bloggers were attacked on busy streets and hacked to death, triggering protests across the country.
An initial investigation had implicated the ABT in the bloggers’ killing, the police have said, adding that there were similarities in all three murders.
ABT is the sixth militant group that has been outlawed in Bangladesh.
