NEW DELHI — Two men who had not been heard from since last month’s restaurant attack in Bangladesh were arrested Thursday on allegations they were involved in the deadly siege carried out by radical Islamists.

A British engineer has been arrested by police in Bangladesh on suspicion of being involved in last month’s deadly siege at a cafe in Dhaka that saw 22 people killed.

A police spokesman confirmed that Hasnat Karim, a British citizen of Bangladeshi origin, was detained on Wednesday night.

He was also once investigated for his alleged involvement with a banned Islamic group, Hizbut Tahrir.

Also being held in connection with the siege was Canadian student Tahmid Khan, who attends the University of Toronto.

Police earlier this week named a Canadian citizen called Tamim Chowdhury as the mastermind of the attack, offering a reward of up to $25,000 for any information leading to his arrest.

    This couldn’t be so.

    Prime Minister Trudeau will tell you that only the uneducated without opportunities are driven to terrorism by us and that therefore we are the ones really at fault not them.
