US, UK to help Bangladesh fight extremism

Washington and London have reiterated their commitment and extended their hands to Dhaka to fight against violent extremism.
In a statement issued on Monday on the killings of police official’s wife Mahmuda Akter and Christian grocer Sunil Gomez, US Ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Bernicat said: “‘I join Bangladeshis in mourning the brutal killings of two more citizens yesterday [Sunday] - a mother and a grocer - who are the latest victims of violent extremism, a global threat our countries must confront together.”
Meanwhile, UK state minister at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Hugo Swire in a tweet message said he was deeply saddened to learn of ‘more brutal murders’ in Bangladesh.
The UK is with Bangladesh in the global fight against extremism, he added.
Mahmuda, wife of a police superintendent, was killed in Chittagong on Sunday while she was taking her son to a school bus.
Sunil was killed in Natore by the extremists on the same day.
