IS Suicide Bomber Hits Bangladesh Police Base; Wounds 2 Police Officers at Anti-Terrorist Base

A suicide bomber injured two Bangladeshi police officers today (March 17, 2017) when he attacked a base being built for the police anti-terrorist unit, according to the Reuters website.

The Islamic State (IS) terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The injured police officers were taken to Dhaka's military hospital.

Mufti Mahmud Khan -- director of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) -- told reporters that a man aged about 25 had blown himself up when challenged as he tried to enter the police special security forces' base, which is still under construction.
