One dead as bomb rips through Ahmadi mosque in Bangladesh


A bomb exploded Friday at a mosque of the minority Ahmadi Muslim group in Bangladesh’s northwestern town of Bagmara leaving the suspected suicide bomber dead and three other people injured, police said.


“One person died on the spot and three other people were injured. It seems he was carrying the bomb and it looks like it was a suspected suicide blast,” local police chief Motiar Rahman told AFP.


Ahmad Tabshir Choudhury, a spokesman of the Ahmadiya Muslim Jamaat in Bangladesh said there were two unknown people who came to the mosque where nearly 100 people including women joined the Friday prayers:


“The bomb was detonated during the prayers. One of the two unknown people died. It appears that he was a suicide bomber,” Choudhury told AFP.


He added that four Ahmadi Muslims were injured including one whose condition is serious.
