Chief of banned extremist group arrested in Bangladesh
font size    

Bangladesh's Islamic extremist group Jamaatul Mujahidden Bangladesh (JMB) chief Shaikh Abdur Rahman, blamed for strings of bomb blasts and suicide attacks that killed 28 people, was arrested Wednesday from northeastern Sylhet town, 344 km from Dhaka.

Nine members of his family, including his wife, sons, daughters and grand sons and daughters were also arrested from the house after a commando-style attack at the house, according to television live broadcast of the security forces' raid.

The chief of the banned JMB has been on the run since series of bomb blasts across the country almost simultaneously, killing three people and injuring 150 others on August 17, 2005.

The Bangladeshi government late last year announced a prize money of 10 million taka (about 140,000 U.S. dollars) for his arrest.
