A senior editor of Bangledesh’s first LGBT magazine has been hacked to death, police say.
Julhas Mannan and another person were murdered when three people came to their apartment in the capital of Dhaka, posing as couriers and attacked them.
Another person was injured in the attack in Kalabagan.
The activist was an editor for Roopbaan, which focuses on issues facing the country’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
On Saturday, a university professor was hacked to death in Bangladesh, supposedly for “calilng to atheism”.
Isis later claimed responsibility for the murder.
Earlier this month, a liberal blogger who criticised Islamism was also hacked to death by attackers wielding machetes.
At least four atheist bloggers were murdered in 2015 for writing critically against militant Islamism.
