US, UK condemn Niloy murder

The United States and the United Kingdom have condemned the killing of blogger Niladri Chattopadhyay alias Niloy Neel, who was murdered by unidentified assailants at his residence in the capital on Friday.
Stressing the need for working together to counter ‘extremism’, Washington and London both also placed emphasis on protecting the freedom of speech.  
“The United States condemns the cowardly murder of writer/blogger Niladri Chattopadhyay in Bangladesh.  We offer our condolences to his family and our support to the Bangladeshi people,” said a media note issued by the US State Department on Friday.
Earlier, the United Nations and Amnesty International also condemned the killing of blogger Niloy.
