Deadly ex­plo­sions rock Bangladesh city:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Two civil­ians and a po­lice of­fi­cer were killed in ex­plo­sions in Bangladesh as troops raided a sus­pected mil­i­tary hide­out in the coun­try’s east, po­lice said. Go­lam Kib­ria, a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cial in the city of Syl­het, said 25 peo­ple were also wounded in the ex­plo­sions, which took place on a road near an Is­lamic re­li­gious school. Since Fri­day, para­mil­i­tary troops have been en­gaged in an op­er­a­tion to flush out a group of Is­lamist rad­i­cals holed up in a nearby build­ing with a large cache of am­mu­ni­tion.
