Second foreigner killed in Bangladesh as Isis claims responsibility


A Japanese man has been killed near Rangpur in northern Bangladesh, five days after an Italian citizen was murdered in the capital Dhaka.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the killing on Twitter, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, a US monitoring organisation. The jihadist group also said it carried out the killing of Cesare Tavella, from Italy, in Dhaka’s diplomatic zone on 28 September.
