Ramadan Death count: Bangladesh 09/06/16

Bangladesh police have shot dead five suspected members of a banned group in three days, including one on Wednesday, as security forces step up the hunt for Islamist militants behind a series of attacks in the majority-Muslim nation. Five suspected members of the outlawed Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen have been killed in shootouts since the wife of a prominent counter-terrorism police official was shot dead by suspected Islamist militants on Sunday.

Ramadan death toll is now at 584
