ITALIAN CESARE TAVELLA KILLED BY ISIS IN BANGLADESH
The Islamic State says, on Tuesday 09/29/2015, it carried the attack, shooting dead Cesare Tavella, 50, in the Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka diplomatic quarter. In its claim, I.S.I.S warned that “citizens of the crusader (the Jihadi term for Christians) coalition” would not be safe in Muslim nations.
Police Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said Cesare Tavella was jogging when two attackers fired at him from behind.
The USA and UK urged citizens to be cautious, saying they had information Western interests could be targeted. They have also restricted the movements of their diplomats.
It is the first time IS has claimed an attack in Bangladesh, where it has not yet announced a branch.
Extremists have carried out a series of high-profile attacks on secular bloggers, hacking to death four bloggers – one a US citizen – so far this year (2015).
One group, Ansarullah Bangla Team, has reportedly threatened to kill secular bloggers and activists outside Bangladesh. The group was outlawed in 05/2015.
Last week, the Australian cricket team delayed its planned departure to Bangladesh after being warned there was a potential security risk.
The tour has not been rescheduled despite assurances from the Bangladeshi government that the players would have a full security detail.
