NO DEATHS In Attack On U.S. Ambassador In Bangladesh



The U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh Marcia Bernicat is safe after an armed militia group attacked the U.S. convoy in Dhaka, Bangladesh during so-called “student” protests.

Newsweek reports: “A convoy carrying the U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh was attacked by armed men in the capital city of Dhaka on Saturday evening. Although Ambassador Marcia Bernicat and her team escaped without injuries, two vehicles were damaged in the violence, according to the Dhaka Tribune. The U.S. embassy thanked local police for their quick response to stop the attackers. The attack came as thousands of students protested in the country, calling for safer roads. Demonstrations have turned violent. The BBC reported that at least 50 people had been injured on Saturday, and Agence France Presse (AFP) reported put the number at closer to 100.”

While young people in surgical masks demand media attention, and outlets including Al-Jazeera cover the supposedly peaceful protests, there are more interests involved in Bangladesh’s instability.

Here is live commando footage from the raid on a Bangladeshi coffeeshop in 2016, where Islamic radicals were holding hostages. ISIS took credit for the attack in 2016 which left 29 dead including two brave police officers.
