London: A British mother was hacked to death on Friday during a violent robbery in Bangladesh where she was holidaying.

Her family said Rehana Begum, 43, was on holiday when she was attacked by a gang of four men who targetted her for her jewellery and money, the Daily Mail reported.

The British national, from Stepney, east London, died in Sunamganj area of Bangladesh, Friday, the Foreign Office confirmed.
