Bangladesh opplevde sin første selvmordsaksjon tirsdag, da en mann forkledt som advokat sprengte seg selv i lufta i Gazipur. Samtidig sprengte en annen flere bomber i havnebyen Chittagong.

Jihadister har satt igang en voldelig kamp for å innføre sharia. De har valgt seg ut jurister og journalister, som symboler på et verdslig styresett.

The group police suspect is Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, which wants to establish Islamic law in Bangladesh. Most laws in Bangladesh are secular, based on British legal code.

Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen is one of three Islamic groups outlawed after the authorities linked them to a series of blasts.

Lawyers and judges have received threatening letters from the group in the past few weeks.

Earlier this month, two judges were killed in a bomb attack as they travelled to court in southern Bangladesh.
