Bangladesh storms hideout for group behind mass murder for Allah attack at restaurant, killing leader
Bangladeshi police say they have stormed a hideout near Dhaka and killed the suspected planner of a cafe attack last month that left 22 people dead.Good riddance. ISIL claimed credit for the mass murder, but Bangladesh disputes that saying the mass murderers were from a local group of Islamic terrorists.
"Tamim Chowdhury is dead," said senior police officer Sanwar Hossain, referring to the Bangladeshi-Canadian suspected mastermind.
Three other suspected militants were killed by police during the raid.
The cafe attack began on 1 July when the militants entered the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka.
They held hostages for 12 hours before police stormed the cafe, rescuing 13, killing six gunmen and arresting another.
Twenty hostages and two police officers were killed in the attack, the worst in the country's history.
