DHAKA: Bangladesh police shot dead an Islamist militant on Wednesday, the fourth killed since a crackdown was launched against suspected jihadists blamed for a wave of gruesome killings, an officer said. The 25-year-old militant was killed during a gun battle with police in northern Bogra district, where he was suspected of bombing a minority Shia shrine last year, the officer said.
