Bangladesh’s security personnel have killed a man they believe trained militants who attacked a cafe in the capital in July. At least 20 people, including foreigners, were killed in the strike.
The suspect, known as Murad, was killed in a police shootout in Mirpur, just outside Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, on Friday night. The exchange of fire happened when the militant attacked the officers with machetes, a pistol and grenades, Additional Inspector General of Police Mokhlesur Rahman told reporters. Four police officers were wounded in the gunfight.
