Bangladesh soldiers raided an Islamic religious school on Tuesday as part of countrywide hunt for Islamist militants and seized a cache of arms and explosives stored there by suspected Islamist militants, police said.
The elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) force raided the Green Crescent Madrasa at a village near Bhola district town, 350 km (219 miles) south of the capital Dhaka, following an intelligence tip, a police officer told Reuters by telephone from the scene.
"The raid is still continuing," said police inspector Mohammad Sohrab Ali. Two suspected Islamist militants from the madrasa were detained, he added.
The government has been conducting a sweep for members of outlawed Islamist groups, which it suspects may have been involved in the mutiny at the Dhaka headquarters of a paramilitary unit last month.
The February 25-26 mutiny killed nearly 80 people, mostly army officers commanding the paramilitary Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) troops, and raised fears of more violence to come.
Police last week said suspected Islamist militants had threatened the principals of several English-language schools if they did not pay "tolls."
