Bangladesh    CATHOLIC ACTIVIST ATTACKED AFTER CONDEMNING ORGANISED CRIME
An internationally recognised Bangladeshi Catholic woman social activist was attacked on 17 April, after she criticised both the government and organised crime at a seminar in the capital Dhaka.
   Rosaline Costa, a Church worker for human rights, justice and peace for 14 years, fell from a rickshaw she was riding as unknown assailants snatched her shoulder bag containing papers she used in the seminar. She sustained a fracture on her left femur and had to undergo surgery.
   Costa won the Bishop Tji Hak-soon International Justice and Peace Prize last year in Seoul. She was the first non-Korean to be awarded the prize.
