Bangladesh Mourns Café Attack That Killed 20
They’re praying for Dhaka. When police stormed a popular expat hangout in the Bangladeshi capital yesterday, they found 20 dead hostages from Italy, Japan, India, Bangladesh and the U.S. It began 11 hours earlier, when attackers shot their way into the Holey Artisan Bakery, reportedly killing hostages overnight before commandos rescued 13. ISIS claimed responsibility, but the government insists an epidemic of ideological “machete” killings are home-grown and the café attackers were Bangladeshi. Now the nation begins two days of mourning for the slain hostages and two police officers killed during the standoff.
