IS claims responsibility for a Bangladesh explosion
[Ynet] A global monitoring group says the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group has grabbed credit for an kaboom targeting a police van in Bangladesh's capital.

Police said Sunday night's kaboom in Dhaka's Malibagh area left three people injured, including a police officer, but they were not sure who was behind the blasts.

U.S.-based SITE Intelligence said in a Twitter post that IS was behind it.

Dhaka Police Commissioner Asaduzzman Mia said Monday that the bomb had been planted in the van. He said it was more powerful than an kaboom in April in Dhaka that was also claimed by IS.

Two of the injured were being treated in a hospital following Sunday's blast.
