    Islamic State reportedly claims responsibility for Italian charity worker’s murder

    The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the murder of an Italian national in Bangladesh, a jihadist threat monitoring portal, SITE Intelligence Group, says.

    An NGO official, Cesare Tavella, aged around 50, was shot dead on Monday evening at the heart of Dhaka’s diplomatic enclave in Gulshan amid the UK and Australia’s security concerns.

    This would be the first attack in Bangladesh by the radical Sunni Islamist militant group that has seized large swathes of territory in eastern Syria and across northern and western Iraq.

    The government has vowed zero tolerant to any form of militant and extremism.

    Police earlier in May arrested a group planning to float an organisation like the IS in order to establish Khilafat in Bangladesh.

    The SITE Intelligence Group ran the story of the IS claim with a message written in Arabic.

    The IS claimed their responsibility just hours after the murder that left law-enforcing agencies, who were allaying Cricket Australia’s concerns on Monday, puzzled.

    Witnesses told bdnews24.com the assailants tailed Tavella, the project manager of NGO ICCO Cooperation’s Profitable Opportunities for Food Security (PROOFS) programme, before gunned him down on Road 90 at about 7pm.

    He was jogging wearing t-shirt and three-quarter pants on the street close to the High Commission of Pakistan and Bangladesh Bank governor’s residence.

    Who are the SITE Intelligence Group?
    Once a little known research group, the Site intelligence surprised many last year when it published a video showing the murder of American journalist Steven Joel Sotloff even before the jihadist did.

    According to the UK-based newspaper The Independent, Site (it stands for ‘Search for International Terrorist Entities’) is a for-profit US-based consultancy group that monitors and tracks the activities of “international terrorists and the global jihadist network”.

    The group has ties to both the US government and commercial clients and specialises in monitoring the online activities of jihadist and issue warning to their clients, the newspaper said in an article last year.

    A profile of Rita Katz, the Director and co-founder of the SITE Intelligence Group, said she studied, tracked, and analysed international terrorists, the global jihadist network and terrorism financing for more than a decade.

    The New Yorker magazine in 2006 described Site’s customers as “people in government […] frustrated by how long it takes to get information through official channels” as well as “people in corporate security and in the media”.

    The Independent said in 2004 Katz was commended by the FBI for her contributions to counterterrorism investigations, and in 2007 her group was credited with finding the first videos of Osama bin Laden after three years of silence.

    Second foreigner killed in Bangladesh

    Japanese national Kunio Hoshi shot in Rangpur, five days after murder of Italian Cesare Tavella by Islamic State in Dhaka

    A Japanese man has been killed near Rangpur in northern Bangladesh, five days after an Italian citizen was murdered in the capital Dhaka.

    The deaths come after several western embassies, including the British and Australian high commissions, issued security warnings about possible militant attacks in the country.

    Kunio Hoshi was shot three times in a remote rural region of Rangpur, where he had invested in a grass cultivation project, the regional police chief, Rezaul Karim, told the Guardian.

    The 66-year-old first went to Bangladesh in 2011 and had visited every year since, police said. He last arrived about five months ago.

    Islamic State has claimed responsibility for killing Cesare Tavella, from Italy, in Dhaka’s diplomatic zone on 28 September.

    Shafqat Munir, a security analyst at the Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies, said no western citizen had been killed or targeted in the country for more than a decade.

    The last such incident occurred in 2004, when the then British high commissioner in Bangladesh, Anwar Choudhury, was attacked Sylhet by the Islamist organisation Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami.

    Bangladesh has since cracked down on militant activities and police have arrested several suspects with links to international terrorist groups, including Isis and al-Qaida.

    “The groups in Bangladesh that have been in operation for many years have always been active and now, because of the rise of violent extremism worldwide, they are also upping their games,” Munir said.

    In August, the country’s paramilitary agency arrested a British citizen and three other people with alleged links to Is is over the killing of secular or atheist bloggers in the country.

    Munir said: “What is extremely alarming is they are able to pull off these attacks despite a supposedly high level of security. After the murder of Cesare Tavella, there was a warning. We would like to believe that the state of alert is quite high. My fear is that this is not going to stop. It will continue and it might escalate.”

    Asked about a connection or pattern to the recent killings, Nazrul Islam, a spokesperson for Bangladesh police headquarters, said no conclusions had been drawn.

    Bangladesh remains unsettled after the ruling Awami League won a controversial election in January 2014 that was boycotted by the mainstream opposition Bangladesh Nationalist party.

    Security and political analysts have long warned about the likelihood of insurgency and security threats unless the government ensured fair and inclusive elections.

    Despicable as these acts are and nothing can excuse them if find it a bit rich that everytime a person from the developed world is a victim it seems to be more newsworthy than the thousands of poor innocents from the rest of the world

    Let Me Tell You Some Other Fact . Tell Me Who Control CCTV Camera , Electricity On Highway ? Is It Police Or We , The General People ?
    Gulshan Is A VVIP / VVVIP Area. Each And Every Corner Is Secured By CCTV & Hightech Security Measures , As There Is High Commissions Of Different Country .

    When Tavella Was Killed,During That Time Suddenly CCTV's Switch Get Off From Control Room. Electricity Gone . And As Soon As The Killers Succeed To Escape , Electricity & CCTV Become Activated .

    Even The Mobile Sim That They Use , Was A Fake Registry . And In Present System , It Is Impossible To Get A Nameless Fake Sim Phone .

    Everything Was Pre Planned . An American Ex High Commissioner To Pakistan And BD Said," Surely Bangladesh Agency Is Involved In It " [MENTION=8]KingKong[/MENTION]
