DHAKA: On Friday, A man conveying a bomb exploded himself up in front of a police checkpoint near Bangladesh’s international airport , in a blast claimed by ISIS.
The terrorist group said it executed many officers and injured others, a record not affirmed by experts.
The blast was the third episode including explosives in the capital in seven days.
On Saturday, Police shot and killed a suspected militant who tried to cross a security checkpoint on a motorcycle armed with explosives in Dhaka’s Khilgaon area.
A day prior to that, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a security forces base, again close to Dhaka’s airplane terminal, harming two cops.
The terrorist named this Friday’s attacker as A Abu Mohammed al-Bengali and said he had exploded his hazardous coat amidst cops it rejected as “renegades” in a message posted on supporters’ web-based social networking accounts.
Dhaka city police boss, Asaduzzaman Mia, gave an alternate record at the scene, telling columnists the man had been conveying the bomb which detonated as he attempted to conceal it from police.
ISIS and Al Qaeda have made contending claims over killings of outsiders, liberals and individuals from religious minorities in Bangladesh, a generally Muslim nation of 160 million individuals.
Authorities have consistently ruled out the presence of such groups, blaming domestic militants instead.
