American blogger hacked to death with machetes in Bangladesh
A known American blogger was attacked and hacked to death with machetes on a street in Dhaka in Bangladesh Thursday.

Avijit Roy, who was born in Bangladesh, was an atheist, author and founder of the blog Mukto-Mona, meaning "free mind."

He had lived in the US for several years and was visiting his former homeland when he was killed.

The 42-year-old was known as a strong advocate of liberal and secular values and had, according to the family received many threats from extremist Islamists.

On Thursday Roy attended a book fair in the capital Dhaka, and on the way back, two unknown men stopped the taxi with him and his wife. The couple were dragged out onto the sidewalk and attacked with machetes, said local media.

- He died on the way to hospital. His wife was also seriously injured, a spokesman for the police said.

Roy is the second blogger who is killed in Bangladesh over the last two years. Extremist Islamists in the country has long demanded that atheists who blogs must be executed in public, and they also require new laws prohibiting criticism of Islam.
