DHAKA Militants on Thursday attacked Bangladeshi police guarding the country's biggest festival marking the end Ramadan, killing two policemen and wounding nine, days after Islamic State claimed a major attack in the capital and warned of more violence.
The militants attacked a police post in Kishoreganj town, about 140 km (90 miles) from the capital, Dhaka, with small bombs and then set upon police with "sharp weapons", said chief district administrator, Mohammad Azimuddin Biswas.
