Gay doesn’t play in Bangladash: US Embassy worker, LGBT editor Xulhaz Mannan hacked to death in Bangladeshi capital



Homosexuality is not accepted in 90% of the world. 
So it wasn’t a bright idea to start an LBGT magazine in Bangladesh.  
CNN reports a U.S. Embassy worker and editor of Bangladesh's first LGBT magazine was among two men hacked to death Monday evening in Dhaka, officials say.

A statement from the U.S. Embassy identified the man as Xulhaz Mannan, calling him a "dear friend."

"We abhor this senseless act of violence and urge the Government of Bangladesh in the strongest terms to apprehend the criminals behind these murders," Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat, the U.S. ambassador to Bangladesh, said in the statement.

Mannan and someone described only as a friend were in a flat in Dhaka when five or six young men posing as couriers arrived at Mannan's building under the guise of delivering a package, said Mohammad Iqbal, officer in charge of the Kalabagan police station.
They entered the second-floor apartment and hacked Mannan and his friend to death with machetes, Iqbal said. Mannan's mother and a maid were also in the flat at the time, he said. Both are alive.
