Religious extremism

A PROMINENT Bangladeshi-American blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death as he walked through Bangladesh’s capital with his wife, police said on Friday.
The attack on Thursday night on Avijit Roy, a Bangladesh-born US citizen, occurred on a crowded footpath as he and his wife, Rafida Ahmed, were returning from a book fair at Dhaka University. Ms Ahmed, who is also a blogger, was seriously injured. It was the latest in a series of attacks on secular writers in Bangladesh in recent years.
