From Chris Summers and Chris Pleasance writing at the Daily Mail:
Jihadist extremists hacked 20 people to death in a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka – sparing only those who could recite from the Koran – before they were gunned down by commandos.
Witnesses said seven Islamist radicals stormed the Holey Artisan bakery and cafe last night armed with assault weapons, pistols and ‘sharp objects’ before taking more than 30 people hostage.
They killed nine Italians, seven Japanese, an Indian, an American and two local men before elite commandos ended the 12-hour standoff by storming the cafe.
Six of the hostage-takers were killed and one was arrested.
