It's in an indian language? Gujarati? Are you in the UK?

How strange

A general Mac / iPhone update or a Bbc update? I've not had notifications on any devices for Mac updates, or app specific for Bbc app

BBC have tweeted - it's an error from their Bengali service and they weren't hacked.

Bbc have confirmed it was sent out by mistake, apparently this is the translation?(found this on Twitter)

It must be the BBC News equivalent of that email that gets sent to all offices in a company by mistake. One poor woman where I used to work sent an email looking for a blue folder, last seen on her desk, to every employee, about 50 offices worldwide. That would be about 12,000 employees. I think quite a few replied too, it took her a while to clear out her in box.

It's in Bengali. It says militants were killed by a police raid in Mirpur. It was a mistake to send it globally apparently.
