BBC
In Bangladesh, A special tribunal in Dhaka today sentenced seven accused persons to death for the Holey Artisan Cafe terror attack case. One of the accused was acquitted.

22 people, including 18 foreigners, two Bangladeshis, and two policemen were killed in the terror attack at the popular eating joint of Dhaka in 2016. Nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian and one Bangladesh-born US citizen were among 18 foreign citizens killed in the attack.

On July 1, 2016 five terrorists attacked the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s posh Gulshan area. They held the foreigners hostage for more than 12 hours before they were killed in a commando operation in which 2 policemen were also killed.

Police had named 21 persons for involvement in the attack including the five killed in the commando operation on July 1. Eight of the accused were killed in police operations later. The judgement on the remaining eight persons was delivered today.
