Golam Kibria, a senior police official in Sylhet city, said that 25 people were also wounded in the explosions that took place Saturday evening on a road near an Islamic religious school.

Paramilitary troops have since Friday been engaged in an operation to flush out a group of Islamist radicals holed up in a nearby building with a large cache of ammunition.

Police said that earlier Saturday, 78 civilians were rescued from the building as troops broke through a boundary wall.

Troops and militants continue to exchange gunfire late Saturday.
