DHAKA: Bangladesh have cancelled this month's home series with Pakistan due to security concerns, the state minister for sports said.

"As of now the security people are busy we don't think it feasible to host any foreign team in the country," Ahad Ali Sarkar told a news conference.

The series was postponed on March 5 after a mutiny last month at the headquarters of a paramilitary unit in Dhaka which killed at least 80 people, mostly army officers.
