US Peace Corps Suspends Programs in Bangladesh


The United States Embassy in Bangladesh says the U.S. Peace Corps has suspended its programs in the country indefinitely because of security concerns.

The embassy issued a statement on Wednesday saying Peace Corps headquarters in Washington suspended its Bangladesh activities due to the possibility that terrorists could target Peace Corps volunteers.

The embassy said attacks could happen in retaliation for the Bangladesh government's recent capture of leaders of the banned Jamayetul Mujahedin Bangladesh group. Authorities blame the militant group for a string of bombings that killed more than 25 people last year.
