Bangladesh opposition leader 'narrowly escaped assassination'

The leader of Bangladesh’s main opposition party came “as close you can possibly come” to being assassinated in an attack at a political rally in which 18 people were killed, her party said. Bullets struck Sheikh Hasina Wajed’s car after blasts tore through an anti-government rally outside the Awami league party’s headquarters Saturday, her political secretary, Saber Hussain Chowdhury, told AFP. “A series of grenades went off at five to seven-second intervals giving the attackers smoke cover; as she was rushed away by bodyguards, her bullet-proof car was hit by at least seven bullets,” Chowdhury said.
