Bangladesh kills two suspects linked to 2016 Dhaka cafe attack

Police cordoned off the area after receiving information about the presence of suspected members of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh, a home-grown militant group that killed 22 people in the cafe attack.

“At least two terrorists were killed in this operation,” Mohammad Mufti Mahmud Khan, director of the legal and media wing of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), told reporters as the operations continued and added that the special forces were still trying to remove a ‘huge amount of explosives’ at the site.

Bangladesh launched a crackdown on militancy after the cafe attack as part of what Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina calls a “zero tolerance” policy.
