Two suspected militants belonging to a banned Islamic group were arrested Wednesday along with a huge cache of bomb-making materials in Bangladesh's capital, a spokesman said. Members of the Rapid Action Battalion, or RAB, raided a home in Dhaka's Badda residential district and made the arrests, spokesman Mashuk Hassan said. Hassan said the detained men were suspected members of the Jumatul Mujahedeen Bangladesh group. "We have seized many hand grenade casings, chemicals and some other materials," Hassan said without giving further details.
