The Islamic State group, IS, has claimed responsibility for the recent attack on worshippers at a Shiite mosque in northern Bangladesh, AFP reports.

The attackers entered the mosque in Shibganj, during early evening prayers on Thursday and opened fire on the gathered worshippers before fleeing.

The attack left one dead, and three others injured.

The SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist activity, said on its website that the Islamic State (IS) group had claimed responsibility in a message posted on Twitter

Bangladesh authorities have previously said there is no evidence that IS militants are active in the country.

However, the group has claimed a series of attacks in Bangladesh, including the shooting and wounding of an Italian priest and the killing of a Sufi Muslim shrine chief, both this month.
