Bodies of 6 brave Bangladeshi peacekeepers return home
The bodies of six Bangladeshi peacekeepers, killed in a road accident in Ivory Coast on August 25, arrived in Dhaka yesterday.
A special UN aircraft, carrying the bodies, landed at Zia International Airport at about 2:45 pm. Foreign Minister M Morshed Khan received the bodies at the airport.
A pall of gloom descended at the tarmac of the VVIP terminal with wailing by wives, parents and other relatives of the killed peacekeepers when their bodies were brought down from the aircraft.
