In one day Bangladesh has been , reportedly, hit by 48 separate small bomb explosion incidents.
One has been reported within a kilometer radius from where I work, close to US embassy!! The whole city has been gripped by fear, phones were buzzing all around. Everyone asking everyoneelse, rumour mills in full swing. Some 40+ injured are reported and no deaths, but the minds have been stung. It is understood now that some fundamentalist faction wants country to be ruled by Islamic laws and this is the warning bell. This is the day when Baghdad gets hit as well with 40 deaths.. and bangladeshis dont who to sympathize with.
I think we the humans have hit some self destruct code in evolution....the slow death is on!!!
