Dhaka: Bangladesh security forces raided a hideout of an outlawed Islamist 
group, arrested a top leader and seized 70 kg of explosives, officials said on 

"On intelligence tips we raided a hideout and arrested a top commander of the 
outlawed Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen group, and seized the explosives and 150 grenade 
shells," Colonel Gulzaruddin Ahmad of the Rapid Action Battalion elite force 
told reporters.

He said another group leader and suspected mastermind of its operations, 
Moulana Sayed, managed to escape during the raid in a Dhaka suburb.

The arrested militant, Hanif Kamal, confessed during interrogation that the 
group was planning to carry out sabotage in the capital ahead of Bangladesh's 
December 18 parliamentary election, in pursuit of the group's aim of making 
mostly Muslim Bangladesh into an Islamic country based on sharia law.

The group was blamed for a series of bombings across the country between August 
and December 2005, killing at least 30 people including judges, police and 
journalists. More than 150 people were wounded in the attacks.
