The Egyptian Embassy in Bangladesh closed its consular section until the end of the month on Wednesday after receiving a bomb threat in protest against the killing of supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo, police and embassy officials said.
Rafiqul Islam, a senior police official in Dhaka's diplomatic zone, said security had also been stepped up outside the embassy.
"Stop genocide on Brotherhood and supporters of Morsi otherwise, on behalf of Bangladesh, I warn you that something wrong will happen," Rafiqul quoted the letter as saying. It was not immediately clear who was behind Wednesday's threat. (Reuters)
