The New York Daily News reported:

An American blogger was hacked to death Friday by cleaver-wielding jihadists in Bangladesh, police said.

Avijit Roy, a Bangladesh-born U.S. citizen, was returning home from a book fair at Dhaka University, in the country’s capital, with his wife, Rafida Ahmed, who was seriously injured in the bloody attack, according to police.

It was not known who was behind the attack, but Roy’s family and friends say he was a prominent voice against religious fanatics and received threats in the past. No groups have claimed the responsibility.

The local police chief, Sirajul Islam, told The Associated Press that the assailants used cleavers to attack Roy and his wife, who is also a blogger.
