DHAKA, Bangladesh (Reuters) -- Eight people were killed and 65 wounded by suspected suicide bombings in two Bangladesh cities, apparently the latest in a wave of attacks by militants fighting to turn the country into a sharia-based Islamic state.
Lawyers said the militants were apparently trying to scare legal professionals before courts began trials of hundreds of detained Islamists for suspected involvement in recent blasts.
Bangladesh has been hit this year by a wave of bombings blamed on militants demanding Islamic law in the mainly Muslim democracy.
Bangladesh should end its occupation of Iraq NOW! Bangali troops, out of Iraq!
N.B. I believe those who keep on linking Iraq to world terror should pack up and live in the south pole
