Dhaka cafe standoff: At least 13 hostages rescued as siege ends

Unread postby Wsj » Sat Jul 02, 2016 3:54 pm

Bangladeshi troops rescued at least 13 hostages and shot dead six gunmen Saturday, ending an overnight siege at a cafe in Dhaka, officials said.

"The operation is over," said Brig. Gen. Mujibur Rahman, who was overseeing the troops in the rescue effort at Holey Artisan Bakery, which was raided by gunmen Friday night.
Its unclear how many people the gunmen seized in the cafe at a diplomatic zone, but Rahman said 14 hostages were rescued.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina provided a different number.
"We were able to save 13 people ... and of these terrorists six of them died on the spot, they died right there," Hasina said at a news conference.
She said one of the terrorists was captured alive.
Before the siege ended, witness Fayad Munaim said he heard heavy gunfire after hours of quiet in the area. The shots lasted about 10 minutes then stopped, he said.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the terror attack, according to its media branch, Amaq. Some U.S. officials have cast doubt on the claim.

Here's what we have so far:
• Gunmen attacked the cafe popular with expats and took those inside hostage, cafe worker Sumon Reza said.
Reza said he escaped as six to eight gunmen entered. About 20 people, some of them foreigners, were in the restaurant.
• A police officer in charge of a nearby station was shot dead, Maruf Hasan of Dhaka Metropolitan Police said. A second officer died from gunshot wounds, Detective Police Deputy Commissioner Sheikh Nazmul Alam said.
• Alam said 40 people were wounded, some by gunshots and others by shrapnel from explosive devices.
• Ataur Rahman, who was in his office about 200 meters from the restaurant, said he went to the street as he heard a series of gunshots. "I thought it might be an attack somewhere nearby by local thugs." He said people were racing for cover, saying gunmen were shouting "Allahu Akbar."
• Police are trying to find out the demands of the gunmen holding customers. The gunmen have not made any demands.
• The U.S. Embassy in Dhaka said it had accounted for all of the American citizens working under the chief of the mission authority.
The embassy and many other diplomatic missions are less than 1.5 kilometers (.9 miles) from the cafe.
