Four Islamic militants in Bangladesh have been formally charged with trying to kill Britain's envoy to the country in a 2004 grenade attack.
The four who were charged in a Dhaka court on Tuesday are members of a group called Harkat-ul-Jihad. The group is one of several outlawed organizations that use violence to bring strict Islamic law to Bangladesh.
British High Commissioner Anwar Choudhury, who is a Muslim of Bangladeshi origin, was one of 50 people injured in the May 21, 2004, grenade attack that also killed three people.
The attack occurred as Choudhury was leaving a mosque in northeastern Bangladesh where he had stopped to pray en route to visiting his ancestral home.
