A suicide bomber today blew himself up inside a camp of Bangladesh's elite anti-crime Rapid Action Battalion here, injuring two security personnel.

"The suicide attacker targeted our camp," RAB legal and media wing Director Mufti Mahmud Khan was quoted as saying by the bdnews.

Witnesses said a youth exploded a powerful bomb as several RAB men gathered at a common bathing place at the camp killing him instantly and seriously wounding two members of the elite force which draws personnel from army, police, navy and air force.

Residents in the neighbourhood said the bomber was aged around 25 years and he apparently sneaked into the complex after scaling the wall.

The attack comes a day after police's Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit conducted a raid in Chittagong's Sitakunda where two militants of New JMB group blew themselves up to evade arrest.

Bangladesh has witnessed a nationwide anti-Islamist crackdown since last week while police said they arrested over 80 militants.
