Two militants were killed on Tuesday in a security raid in Bangladesh’s Chapainawabganj district, a police official said.

“The militants were most likely killed in suicide explosions causing a fire in a house where they were hiding,” the official told Xinhua.

He said security forces surrounded the house suspecting it to be a militant hideout.

The suspected militants inside exploded four to five bombs as the law enforcers asked them to surrender, he added.

At least three people, including owner of the house, were detained.
