Ambia Begum, wife of Christian convert Hossain Ali, who was murdered by ISIS, cries in her home in Kurigram, Bangladesh. On March 22 Ali was taking his usual morning walk when he was attacked and died. Ali was a Navy Commander during Bangladesh's 1971 Liberation War, and converted to Christianity 16 years ago. The police warned him and his family to be careful and limit their movement because of the ongoing security issues, but Ali felt safe since he said he had no enemies.
