Commandos storm foreigners’ restaurant in Dhaka as terrorists kill 20
Bangladeshi leader calls for two days of mourning after killers hack to death hostages in Holey Artisan Bakery who were unable to quote from the Qu’ran
A 13-hour hostage crisis in the heart of Dhaka was brought to an end after commandos stormed a restaurant popular with expatriates that had been seized by Islamist gunmen.
Many of the 20 people killed by the group of seven militants in the Holey Artisan Bakery were foreigners who had been deliberately singled out and hacked to death with knives. Two policemen also died during the initial stages of the crisis.
