Possible Mother and Son Suicide Bombers Attack Bangladesh


On Christmas Eve, a woman and a teenager believed to possibly be a mother and son duo blew themselves up during a police raid on a two-story house. The house was located in Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka. The two suicide bombers are suspected in being linked to a banned Islamist militant group.

The bomb that detonated the explosion was attached to the body of the woman. The teenage boy’s mangled corpse was found inside an apartment on the ground floor of the building near Dhaka’s Ashkona area.

According to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan, a 7-year-old girl was injured in the explosion.
