Dhaka: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said she was determined to eradicate terrorism in Bangladesh today after security forces stormed a cafe where Islamist extremists had taken dozens of diners hostage.
"It was an extremely heinous act. What kind of Muslims are these people? They don't have any religion," she said in a televised speech.
"People must resist these terrorists. My government is determined to root out terrorism and militancy from Bangladesh."
