Security forces claim to have killed three people, including prime suspect Bangladeshi-Canadian citizen Tamim Chowdhury.
Bangladesh police have stormed a house outside the capital, Dhaka, shooting dead three people, including the main suspect in the last month’s cafe attack that killed 22 hostages.
“We can see three dead bodies here,” senior police officer Sanwar Hossain told AFP news agency on Saturday.
“Tamim Chowdhury is dead. He is the Gulshan attack mastermind and the leader of JMB (Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh, a domestic armed outfit),” he said.
