The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the shooting death of a Japanese national on Saturday in Bangladesh — the second foreigner to be slain there in less than a week — and promised more attacks.

The militant group issued a statement on Twitter saying it was behind the attack, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadi networks. The Islamic State group had earlier claimed responsibility for the murder of an Italian citizen shot dead in Bangladesh on Tuesday. Both accounts could not be independently confirmed.
