 Bangladesh: murdered Christian convert, 68, had spoken of risks he faced

A Christian convert in Bangladesh stabbed to death by suspected Islamic militants had spoken of the risks he ran and prayed for protection.

Police said three attackers approached 68-year-old Hossain Ali on a motorbike while he was taking his regular morning walk in the town of Kurigram and then stabbed him in the neck.

A member of staff from Redcliffe College in Gloucester told Christian Today he had said: "Lord, look at this, they don't know anything, they don't understand, forgive them." He prayed that God would "place me under Your control".

The killing is the latest in a series of attacks on minorities in the country. Atheist bloggers have been murdered as well as liberal activists and members of minority Muslim sects and other religious groups.

Kurigram district police chief Tobarak Ullah told AFP: "He died on the spot. The attackers exploded a molotov cocktail to create panic and left the scene on a motorcycle."
