My good friend and former colleague at this office, Anwar Choudhury, recently moved to be the High Commissioner of Bangladesh. This was an amazing move for all sorts of good reasons. He’s been out there just a couple of weeks.
I learnt a couple of hours ago that he was the target of a bomb attack – reports are scarce but he looks to have sustained some injuries, but not too serious. Other people surrounding him were apparently killed.
Anwar’s a tough guy and I hope that he recovers speedily. My thoughts are with him and the families of the people killed and injured.
