 Identities of men behind Dakar restaurant attack revealed



Identities of men behind Dakar restaurant attack revealed
Local investigators have revealed that the seven militants who killed 20 people at a restaurant in Dhaka, were local Bangladeshi.
Authorities say they have tried to arrest five of the militants in the past as investigations continue to determine possible links with international Islamist extremist groups.
Recall that the gunmen attacked a restaurant in the diplomatic zone late on Friday, before killing 20 hostages, including at least nine Italians, seven Japanese and an American.
Islamic State claimed responsibility, warning citizens of “crusader countries” that their citizens would not be safe “as long as their aircraft are killing Muslims”, the group said in a statement. It also posted pictures of five fighters it said were involved in the attack. Its claims have not been confirmed.
