NEW DELHI – Bangladesh police say they have arrested two suspected members of a banned radical Islamist group and seized at least 20 bombs and bomb-making materials in a series of raids over the weekend.
Authorities have been under pressure to crack down on radical groups after attacks on foreigners and minorities last year raised concern about rising extremism in the secular South Asian nation.
