A Hindu tailor has been hacked to death, by suspected Islamist militants, in Bangladesh, in the latest in a series of attacks in the country.
A Hindu tailor has been hacked to death in a district of central Bangladesh, police say, the latest of a number of Islamist killings in the country.
Nikhil Joarder, who was in his early 50s, was attacked as he sat outside his shop in Tangail on Saturday afternoon.
Police said he had been arrested in 2012 for allegedly making derogatory comments about Islam, then released.
Islamic State claimed the attack although the authorities deny the group is active in the country.
A number of similar recent killings in Bangladesh have been claimed by various Islamist militant groups.
