Late last night, a hostage situation unfolded in Dhaka, Bangladesh at a cafe. As news developed, Al Qaeda was suspected, but eventually it came out that it was an ISIS attack. After the terrorists were killed authorities began to assess the casualties. This afternoon, we have learned that three victims who were viciously “hacked” to death in the attack were American students.
The Muslim terrorists slaughtered 20 hostages, hacking them to death with blades they brought with them. They determined who to kill by testing each person’s knowledge of the Koran. If you didn’t know the Muslim holy book, you died horribly, which is pretty much the Islamic terror plan for the whole world.
Among those killed were three American university students:
At least three American students have been identified among 20 people killed during an ISIS attack on a cafe in Bangladesh yesterday.
Abinta Kabir, a student at Emory University who was from Miami, Florida, died when terrorists attacked the largely foreign crowd inside the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka last night.
Fellow Emory student Faraaz Hossain, who attended the college’s business school, was also identified as being among the dead by a spokesman today. Tarushi Jain, 19, who studied at University of California Berkeley campus, was also killed.
This is the latest in a series of attacks by ISIS during Ramadan, something they promised ahead of time to little news or warning from western media or the American government.
Here is more on the attack, from the Daily Mail:
According to witnesses a group of seven Islamist radicals stormed the cafe yesterday evening armed with assault weapons, pistols and ‘sharp objects’ before taking more than 30 people hostage.
The terrorists then hacked 20 people to death, sparing only those who could recite the Koran, before engaging police in a 12-hour standoff.
The cafe was eventually stormed by elite Bangladeshi commandos who killed the attackers and freed the remaining hostages.
Among those killed are nine Italians, as well as tourists from Japan, South Korea, and India.
The terrorists took photos during their murderous rampage, some of which are now online. You can click to see if you wish to understand the vicious hatred of the enemy, but be warned in advance, while these are blurred out, they are still tough to look at.
