Bangladesh beefs up security for foreigners after 2nd ISIS-claimed killing; PM denies ISIS link


DHAKA (REUTERS) – Bangladesh stepped up security for foreign diplomats and citizens on Sunday (Oct 4) after the killing of two foreigners within a week in attacks claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which has vowed similar further assaults in the Muslim-majority nation.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday dismissed ISIS’ claim to have killed the foreigners, saying police still had no evidence to confirm the militant group was behind the murders.
