Bangladesh: Muslims hack another blogger to death for anti-Islam writings

The world yawns at this thuggery and bloodlust. Atheist writer Avijit Roy was murdered in Bnagladesh recently; the international media barely took notice.

The killers are Zikrullah, 22, a student of Hathajari Madrasa in Chittagong and Ariful Islam, 22, student of Darul Ulum Madrasa, Mirpur 1 in Dhaka, said Biplop Kumar Sarker, deputy commissioner of Tejgaon Divison.
Another killer Abu Taher managed to flee from the scene. No detail was found regarding him, the police official added.
Zikrullah, son of Mainuddin, hailed from Raipura of Narsingdi and Ariful Islam, son of Tazul Islam, came from Barkawlia of Comilla.
