Suspected Maoist rebels have stormed a remote police camp in northwestern Bangladesh, killing three policemen and stealing some arms and ammunition.
According to the United News of Bangladesh, the incident occurred Wednesday at Bamihal police camp in Natore district, some 200 kilometers northwest of Dhaka.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the news agency quotes witnesses as saying the gang of attackers chanted Maoist slogans before escaping.
Numerous Maoist groups operate in the southern and western areas of Bangladesh. In the past, police have linked the Purba Banglar Communist Party to dozens of killings, including journalists, policemen and politicians.
