Policeman dead, five others injured after blast at Bangladesh Eid gathering


At least one policeman was killed and five others wounded Thursday after a small bomb exploded near a mass Eid prayer congregation in Bangladesh, police said.

Police and local media said the explosion occurred at a school outside the prayer ground in the northern Kishoreganj district where at least 200,000 people were gathered. There were also exchanges of gunfire at the scene.

“One police constable is dead and at least five others were injured,” Mahbub, a police officer in the Kishoreganj control room, told AFP.

Police say assailants hurled homemade bombs at a police team.

More details awaited.
