BAD WEATHER OR SECURITY THREAT?
Bangladesh Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's scheduled visit to Satkhira was cancelled as the government said the chopper carrying her could not land because of fog. However rumours of a planned bomb attack on her meeting venue were widely circulated in Satkhira (The Daily Star). Two hours before the scheduled meeting of the PM, police radided the house of Jamaat-e-Islami Rokan Moulana Yunus Ali and found two grenades. They also arrested Yunus' son Abdullah Al Mamun, 21, who is an activist of Islami Chhatra Shibir, student wing of JIB.
Meanwhile fresh threats were made that about 3,000 members of suicide squad of Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) are ready to carry out attacks on upcoming Eid congregations, police stations, Deputy Commissioners’ (DC) offices.
It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.
