DUBAI (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for bombings that targeted Shi’ites in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, on Saturday, the monitor group SITE said.

It cited Islamic State as saying “soldiers of the Caliphate in Bangladesh” detonated explosive devices in Dhaka during “polytheist rituals”.
