Islamic vigilantism in the streets once more.
A second blogger who is believed to have made comments about Islamists has been hacked to death in Bangladesh.
Washiqur Rahman, 26, was attacked with meat cleavers just metres from his home in the capital Dhaka, according to police official Biplob Kumar Sarker.
“Two students from an Islamic school have been arrested while a third is on the run,” Mr Sarker said.
Rahman was declared dead at a hospital shortly after being attacked in the city’s Tejgaon area, the officer said.
It was not immediately known what Rahman’s blogging focussed on, but the suspects, both aged 20, told police they were targeting him due to his anti-Islamic writings, Mr Sarker said.
One of the suspects also told reporters they attacked Rahman because he had disrespected the Prophet Mohammed.
