ISIS gloats with horrific images of bodies strewn between tables 'from inside Bangladesh restaurant where they killed at least 20 and injured 40' - as police finally end siege and free 14 hostages-By Mia De Graaf For Dailymail.com and Imogen Calderwood For Mailonline and Agencies-Updated: 08:05 GMT, 2 July 2016
Bangladeshi commandos have stormed a restaurant that had been attacked by ISIS freeing some 13 hostages. Armed terrorists raided the building in Dhaka's upmarket Gulshan quarter taking at least 30 hostages including a large number of foreigners. The terrorists were surrounded by elite commandos for more than 10 hours before the security forces recaptured the building.Six of the ISIS jihadis were killed along with an unspecified number of civilians. The gunmen were armed with high-powered automatic weapons when they entered the Holey Artisan Bakery, which is in the capital's diplomatic zone. The ISIS media wing has claimed responsibility for the attack which was launched on the final Friday of Ramadan, as millions of Muslims prepare to celebrate the Eid holiday. The final ten days of Ramadan are the most solemn in the Islamic calendar. However, Bangladeshi prime minister Sheikh Hasina condemned the terrorists, one of who has been arrested alive. He said: 'Because of the effort of the joint force, the terrorists could not flee. 'Anyone who believes in religion cannot do such act. They do not have any religion, their only religion is terrorism.'Two police officers were killed, including a local police station chief, Mohammed Salahuddin, who was earlier injured in the shoot-out. According to a local photojournalist, Mr Salahuddin was asked by his colleagues not to cross the cordon as he was not wearing a bullet-proof vest.Just moments after he crossed the line, according to the Daily Star in Dhaka, he was shot. A second policeman, Robiul Islam, assistant commissioner of Uttara zone Detective Branch, has also died in the shooting, top police officials confirmed. Another 25 officers and one civilian are being treated for injuries from gunshots and shrapnel, with 10 people in a critical condition, according to hospital authorities.ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist activity. SITE said ISIS' Amaq News Agency reported ISIS terrorists had carried out the attack.Speaking after the raid, Lieutenant Colonel Tuhin Mohammed Masud, commander of the Rapid Action Battalion said: 'We have gunned down at least six terrorists and the main building is cleared but the operation is still going on.'He said there were casualties among other hostages, but did not provide details.A Japanese government spokesman said that a Japanese hostage was rescued with a gunshot wound but seven others are unaccounted for. Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Hagiuda said that the eight were together at the restaurant at the time of the attack.One member of staff from the restaurant who managed to escape, Sumon Reza, told Bangladeshi newspaper The Daily Star: 'They blasted several crude bombs, causing wide-scale panic among everyone.'I managed to flee during this confusion.' He added: 'They came armed with pistols, swords and bombs. They shouted Allahu Akbar [God is great] before blasting the bombs.' .A police officer assists an injured colleague outside the Holey Artisan Bakery cafe, currently under a hostage siege by armed gunmen.Two police officers injured earlier in the shoot-out have been confirmed dead, according to local media reports-Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have surrounded the Spanish restaurant, as communications are believed to be underway in an attempt to save their lives of those inside-http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3670353/Gunmen-attack-restaurant-Dhakas-diplomatic-quarter-police-witness.html#ixzz4DEmye05M

Istanbul airport bombers 'planned hostage-taking'-[AFP]-July 1, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Istanbul (AFP) - The suicide attackers who launched the deadly Istanbul airport assault were planning to take dozens of passengers hostage, Turkish media reported Friday, as two of the bombers were identified.Turkish officials have pointed blame at the Islamic State jihadist group for Tuesday night's gun and bomb spree at Ataturk airport, which left 44 people dead including 19 foreigners."They say they are doing this in the name of Islam," President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on a visit to Istanbul."That has nothing to do with Islam. Their place is in hell," he added.State-run news agency Anadolu said 24 people had been detained in Istanbul in a string of raids over the attack, including 15 foreigners.Citing a prosecution source, the agency named two of the attackers as Rakim Bulgarov and Vadim Osmanov, without giving their nationalities.Officials had previously said the three bombers were a Russian, an Uzbek and a Kyrgyz national.- 'Number one enemy' -Turkish media identified the strike's organiser as Akhmed Chatayev, the Chechen leader of an IS cell in Istanbul who reportedly found accommodation for the bombers.Chatayev allegedly organised two deadly bombings this year in the heart of the city's Sultanahmet tourist district and the busy Istiklal shopping street, the Hurriyet newspaper said.Michael McCaul, chairman of the US House Committee on Homeland Security, described Chatayev as "probably the number one enemy in the Northern Caucasus region of Russia"."He's travelled to Syria on many occasions and became one of the top lieutenants for the minister of war for ISIS operations," McCaul told CNN.Swedish court documents seen by AFP showed the 36-year-old had been sentenced to 16 months in jail there in 2008 for arms trafficking, after which he would be deported.He had been granted political asylum in Austria in 2003.The pro-government Sabah newspaper reported that the attackers scouted the scene and planned to take dozens of passengers hostage inside before carrying out a massacre.But they began the assault early after attracting suspicion, Sabah said.CCTV images released by police show the three alleged attackers arriving, wearing dark coats over their suicide vests -- clothing that was much too heavy for a hot summer night.More images show a plainclothes police officer confronting one of the men by an elevator and asking to see his identification. The attacker pulls out a gun and shoots him.- 'Like bandits' -Turkey has been rocked by a series of attacks in the past year blamed on either IS jihadists or Kurdish rebels.These have taken a heavy hit on tourism, and on Friday Germany warned its citizens to exercise particular caution if they travel to Turkey.The latest assault sparked global condemnation, with consuls from a dozen countries around Europe and beyond gathering at the airport Friday to lay flowers in memory of the victims.Hundreds of mourners also gathered in Istanbul on Thursday for the funeral of popular 28-year-old teacher Huseyin Tunc, who was at the airport to welcome a friend."We still can't believe it," one of his pupils, Batuhan Karabey, told AFP."He was more than a teacher to us -- he was like a big brother, helping us a lot."The Hurriyet newspaper reported that the bombers had rented a flat in Istanbul's Fatih district, home to many Syrians and other Arabs, and paid 24,000 Turkish lira ($8,300, 7,500 euros) in advance for a year's rent.The police raided the apartment after the attack, according to an upstairs neighbour, who said the men kept the curtains closed.She never saw the attackers, but she heard them, and complained to neighbourhood officials about a strange smell."A very weird, chemical smell," she told Hurriyet."Police came after the bombing... I lived on top of the bomb."Hurriyet also quoted a local plumber, identified only by his initials E.S., who said one of the attackers came to his shop to ask if he could fix their tap."He spoke in broken Turkish. He took me home," the plumber said."I changed the tap. I saw three people inside. They looked like bandits -- one of them always stood by me."
