Genocide Day observed nationwide

The country observed Genocide Day on Saturday for the first time to commemorate the brutality carried out by the Pakistani Army in the “Black Night” of March 25, 1971. Marking the day, discussions and rallies were held while special prayers were offered for the victims across the country, where people regardless of ages and social strata attended. West Pakistan authorities did not hand over power to Bangabandhu despite winning the first general election in 1970, he added. “Rather, they [West Pakistani authorities] gathered forces in East Pakistan to launch an atrocity on Bangalis in the night of March 25,” he said. Such programmes were held in Bhola, Dinajpur, Manikganj, Bagerhat, Joypurhat, Chandpur and Madaripur, our correspondents confirmed.

Suicide bomber targets crowd for the first time

The suicide bombing in the middle of a crowd in the town of Dakshin Surma, Sylhet right outside a militant den appears to be a compound attack. Court Inspector Abu Kaisar was killed by the bomb dropped by the suicide attacker. A crowd of at least 5-600 people were standing at about 250 metres from the militant den where the attack took place. Our Sylhet Correspondent Serajul Islam, on the spot, saw a gory scene of wounded persons lying around as the remaining crowd fled after the explosion. Police and army para-commandos have been trying to penetrate the militant den on the ground floor of the building since around 9am Saturday after having it cordoned off for roughly 30 hours.
