Default Blast Outside Bangladesh Hotel Injures 50

DHAKA, Bangladesh (A P) - A bomb exploded in the parking lot of a hotel in northeastern Bangladesh city where the opposition-backed mayor was holding a meeting, wounding at least 50 people, witnesses and doctors said.

The attack happened outside the Hotel Gulshan in Sylhet city, 120 miles northeast of the capital, Dhaka, Mayor Badaruddin Kamran said.

"We had just come out after the meeting when the blast occurred," he said.

Some witnesses reported the bomb was thrown from a passing car, Kamran said.

The latest blast comes just two days after two near-simultaneous bomb explosions outside movie theaters killed a 13-year-old boy and injured seven other people in the city. Another unexploded bomb was found in front of a third movie theater in another part of the city.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blasts Thursday night. Police said Friday they were questioning six men about the attack, but gave no word on a possible motive.
