Police in northwestern Bangladesh have found similarities between the killing of a university professor Saturday and recent slayings of bloggers and secular activists by Islamist militants.
Rezaul Karim Siddique, an English professor at Rajshahi University, was hacked to death when he went to catch a bus to campus around 7.30 a.m., police said. The attack took place near Siddique's house and was carried out by two assailants on a motorcycle, police said citing witnesses.
