Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Several killed in Bangladesh protest over anti-Muslim Facebook post”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

At least four people were killed and about 100 injured when security officials in Bangladesh opened fire during a protest over a Facebook post criticizing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

The violence unfolded in the Borhanuddin section of the southern district of Bhola — about 72 miles south of the capital, Dhaka, Sunday — when enraged protesters demanded that a Hindu man be punished for the alleged Facebook comment, local police chief Sarkar Mohammad Kaisar said.

The man, who has not been identified, denied making the comment and claimed that his account had been hacked.

Authorities held a meeting to try to calm the masses as the Facebook post gained attention in the region but tempers flared even higher and angry protesters began to attack security officials, prompting them to unload their weapons.

Four people were killed and the injured civilians, as well as about a dozen police officials, were being treated at local hospitals, authorities said.
