Dhaka (IINA) � A suspected suicide bomber blew himself up Friday at a camp for Bangladesh's elite anti-crime Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Dhaka, wounding two security personnel, news agencies reported.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said a man carrying explosives entered the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) camp and blew himself up.
"The person who was carrying the bomb was killed," said Khan.
Witnesses said a youth, aged around 25 years, detonated a powerful bomb as several RAB men gathered at a common bathing place at the camp, killing him instantly and seriously wounding two members of the elite force which draws personnel from army, police, navy and air force.
The attack comes a day after police unit of Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime conducted a raid in Chittagong, a coastal seaport city in the country's southeast, where two militants of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) group blew themselves up to evade arrest.
