DHAKA - A bomb attack on a Bangladeshi mosque during Friday prayers killed one person and wounded at least a dozen, the latest in a series of attacks in the Muslim-majority nation.

The bombing took place at a mosque run by the minority Ahmmadya Muslim community in Rajshahi in the northwest of the impoverished country, police official Motiar Rahman said.

"We are investigating whether it was a suicide attack or the attacker himself died in the blast when he tried to throw the bomb," he said.
