The bodies of six Bangladeshi peacekeepers, killed in a road accident in Ivory Coast on August 25, arrived in Dhaka yesterday.
A special UN aircraft, carrying the bodies, landed at Zia International. Foreign Minister M Morshed Khan received the bodies at the airport. Grief stricken relatives of the dead men were at the tarmac of the VVIP terminal when their bodies were brought down from the aircraft. The foreign minister placed wreaths at the coffins. The chiefs of the three services were beside him.
Amir Khasru has more on the story.
