How long will it take for officialdom and the media to notice that the people who set off these bombs in Bangladesh, Hamas, Al-Qaeda and the London bombers all have the same ideology? How long will it take before they begin to address the question of where this ideology comes from? Bangladesh jihad update from AFP, with thanks to Nicolei:
More than 100 small bombs apparently planted by a banned Islamic extremist group exploded almost simultaneously in towns and cities across Bangladesh on Wednesday, injuring at least 30 people, police said, although some media reports counted two dead and more than 100 injured.
A total of 111 explosions, including 15 in the capital, Dhaka, and 20 in the south-eastern port of Chittagong, caused panic near bus and train stations, courts and administrative buildings, various police officials said, adding they appear to have been caused by small home-made devices.
Police in some affected cities said leaflets — signed in the name of banned extremist group Jamayetul Mujahedin [Party of Jihadists] and calling for the implementation of Islamic law — were found near the scene of the blasts.
Some were written in Arabic and others in Bangla.
In the northern town of Mymensingh, 13 people suffered minor injuries and eight of them were released from hospital after treatment, police said.
Seventeen others were detained in hospitals with non-life threatening injuries in seven different cities.
