Choudhury was flown to the capital, Dhaka, by military helicopter after his treatment. Choudhury, a 44-year-old Bangladeshi-born Briton, was visiting the shrine after assuming his post last week.

"There was a big bang as the devotees were preparing to leave after the prayers," said Abul Kalam, a witness. "We all screamed and ran for cover."

No one claimed responsibility for the blast at the Hazrat Shahjalal shrine in Sylhet, 120 miles northeast of Dhaka, a police official said on condition of anonymity.
