Professor hacked to death in Bangladesh

Unidentified attackers have hacked a university professor to death in Bangladesh, police say, adding that the assault bore the hallmarks of previous killings of bloggers and online activists.

Police said Rezaul Karim Siddique, a 58-year-old English professor, was attacked from behind with machetes as he walked to the bus station on Saturday from his home in the country’s northwestern city of Rajshahi.

Al Jazeera’s Maher Sattar has more from Dhaka.
