The Economist describes May 6th attack on HeI as massacre
"THE ARMY was still counting the dead from Bangladesh's biggest industrial disaster, when a massacre of hardline Islamic demonstrators unfolded in the early hours of May 6th. It took place in the commercial district of Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital. At least 37 were killed and hundreds more injured in clashes between security forces and members of an extreme Islamic group, Hefajat-e-Islam. The final death toll is likely to be higher."

The article, however, appears overly influenced by AL/RAW propaganda failing to note that the Hefajat-e-Islam protesters were unarmed and the use of the words 'hardline' and 'extreme' could have been avoided as the behavior of HeI activists had been largely peaceful and restrained. In comparison, the actions of the police, BGB and RAB were brutal and callous.
