In Bangladesh radical Islamist murder people, officials blame Israel
Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has suggested an Israeli link to the recent killings of secular bloggers and minorities.It is hard to comprehend such incompetent police work or the ethnic and religious bigotry that goes into such ridiculous thinking. There is no conceivable motive for Israel to be involved in the attacks. Islamists are taking credit for the killings and the possibility that they might be acting on behalf of Israel is beyond remote.
He said an opposition MP had met an Israeli intelligence agent and there was evidence of an "international conspiracy" against Bangladesh.
Mr Khan's comments come a day after the wife of a senior police officer investigating the deaths was shot dead.
Most of the killings have been blamed on or claimed by Islamists.
The government has sought in the past to link the opposition to the attacks.
At least 30 people have been killed in the wave of attacks on those seen by extremists as offensive to Islam.
