Buddhist temple destroyed in Bangladesh

"Islamic radicals" blamed for violence reportedly sparked by photos of Quran being desecrated.

    In Bangladesh, government leaders are blaming opposition parties and what they call "Islamic radicals" for attacks on Buddhists.

    Temples have been set on fire in the country, apparently after photos appeared on Facebook showing the Quran being desecrated.

    But there might have been other more complex causes for the violence, and some think the attacks were premeditated.
