Two Bangladeshi workers reportedly died from strangulation while being asleep in Lebanon. They were residents of Govindpur village under Teghoria union of Habiganj Sadar Upazila, according to media reports.
The deceased were--Abdullah Mia (36) son of Siddique Ali of Govindpur village and Mozammel Mia (23) son of Jharu Mia of the same village.
Abdullah went to Lebanon about two years ago and Mozammel one and half years ago.
As there was extreme cold in Lebanon, two of them went to sleep after lighting fire in their room on the night of February 11. Seeing the door locked late in the morning, people in the neighborhood knocked on the door. With no response from inside, people broke into the room and found them lying dead in bed.
