Protesters hit the streets in Bangladesh after a video surfaced of men beating to death and then lynching a 13 year-old boy.
According to local media, Samiul Alam Rajon was accused by the men of stealing a bicycle in the northeastern Bangladeshi city of Sylhet.
The video, taken by a bystander, shows the men laughing and taunting the young boy as they beat him over and over with a metal rod.
His body had over 64 injuries before it was found.
The boy’s family insists he was innocent of the crime.
One of the suspects, Kamrul Islam, fled Jeddah but was arrested Tuesday in his home town of Saudi Arabia.
The other men were arrested in Bangladesh.
According to CNN, State Minister for Home Affairs for Bangladesh called the events unfortunate and vowed the the killers would not be spared.
