Bodies of 4 Bangladeshi peacekeepers reach Dhaka
The bodies of four Bangladeshi peacekeepers killed in the line of duty in Mali last month were flown back to Dhaka on Thursday afternoon. Warrant Officer Abul Kalam Azad, Corporal Mohammad Akter Hossin and soldiers Mohammad Rayhan Ali and Jamal Uddin were all killed when their vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED) on February 28. Four other peacekeepers were also seriously injured in the attack, which happened on the Boni-Douentza road in the Mopti region of the West African country. An Emirates Airlines flight carrying the four bodies of the peacekeepers landed at Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 4:50pm on Thursday, sources at the airport said. The bodies will be handed over to their mourning families after the namaz-e-janaza of the deceased is held at 8:30am today at Chopper's Den of Dhaka Cantonment,  an officer of Inter Service Public Relation (ISPR) said, preferring anonymity. A memorial ceremony for the deceased was held on March 7 at the MINUSMA Operational Base in Bamako, Mali.
