    The 65-year-old was killed in the village of Bonpara, home to the oldest Christian communities on the island state.

    Shafiqul Islam, deputy police chief of the surrounding Natore district, said: "Sunil Gomes was hacked to death at his grocery store just near a church at Bonpara village.”

    It comes just hours after the wife of a top anti-terror police officer was brutally murdered in the city of Chittagong by suspected members of a banned extremist group.

    Several? Hardly a week goes by without another person hacked to death by a baying crowd. Its worse than Pakistan - perhaps because Pakistan lacks secular bloggers to hack to death in the first place.
