On 29 October 2020, the U.S. Embassy issued a Security Alert regarding a planned rally in Dhaka, which reads in part as follows: “The Islami Andolan Bangladesh (IAB) religious organization plans to hold a rally November 1, 2020, at the National Press Club in the Motijheel area (approximately 12 km from the U.S. Embassy) and march to the French Embassy to protest the French government’s response after the murder of a French teacher in Paris. The IAB plans further protests in the coming days.”
