These Muslims are the ones responsible for the terrible and gruesome attack that left 20 dead in Bangladesh. Is it time to start profiling? Or do you think that profiling is ‘mean’?
Jihadist extremists hacked 20 people to death in a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka – sparing only those who could recite from the Koran – before they were gunned down by commandos.
Witnesses said seven Islamist radicals stormed the Holey Artisan bakery and cafe last night armed with assault weapons, pistols and ‘sharp objects’ before taking more than 30 people hostage.
They killed nine Italians, seven Japanese, an Indian, an American and two local men before elite commandos ended the 12-hour standoff by storming the cafe.
Six of the hostage-takers were killed and one was arrested.
Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has declared two days of national mourning after the massacre in the upmarket Gulshan district of the city.
In a statement on television she said: ‘It was an extremely heinous act. What kind of Muslims are these people? They don’t have any religion.’
Most of the Italian victims were understood to work in the fashion industry, buying fabrics from Bangladesh.
Italy’s footballers are wearing black armbands in memory of the victims when they play Germany tonight in their Euro 2016 quarter final in France.
