Terror threat: US issues travel alert for Bangladesh
November 11 , 2015
The US has issued a travel alert for Bangladesh, saying there was reliable information that terrorists could target foreigners in the South Asian country.
This year several attacks have been carried out by suspected Islamic militants in Bangladesh. Secular bloggers and two foreigners, an Italian aid worker and a Japanese cultivator, have been killed in these attacks.
The US State Department alert says there is potential for extremist violence, including violence targeting large gatherings of foreigners.
