FILE- A Dec. 29, 2018 file photo of Bangladesh police's elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), a security force focused on combating extremist groups, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Indian and Bangladeshi officials and security experts largely dismissed a fresh threat of violence from an Islamic State-aligned media group, insisting that routine monitoring of would-be militants would prevent a Sri Lanka-style attack from taking place elsewhere in South Asia. Al-Mursalat Media released a graphic on Tuesday of five militants who carried out a 2016 attack at a cafe in the diplomatic enclave of Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, according to global terrorism monitor SITE Intelligence. Mufti Mahmud Khan, a spokesman for RAB, told The Associated Press that he didn’t place “any great emphasis” on the threat released by the IS-aligned media group. (AP Photo/Anupam Nath, File)
