As thousands of Shiite Muslims gathered for a religious procession before dawn Saturday, unidentified attackers hurled home-made bombs that exploded in the crowd and killed a teenage boy while injuring more than 100 others in Bangladesh's capital, police said.
Police said the attack on Shiites — a minority in the Sunni-dominated country — was unprecedented for Bangladesh, which has seen a rise in violence this year claimed by extremist Islamist groups amid political instability.
