SYLHET, BANGLADESH — Brutal footage of the torture and murder of vegetable vendor Samiul Alam Rajon, 13, on July 8th in Sylhet, Bangladesh was posted online to Facebook and YouTube after being recorded by the killers.
The 28-minute-long video has stirred outrage and disgust in the online community and the town of Sylhet, where hundred of demonstrators took to the streets calling for justice and punishment for Rajon's cold-blooded killers.
