A multi-national crowd was dining when terrorists invaded the trendy restaurant in a diplomatic enclave of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.
The attackers took hostages and exchanged gunfire with police until soldiers moved in and killed the militants.

Twenty-one people inside the Holey Artisan Bakery cafe were killed, along with two police officers and four terrorists.
The slain victims included nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian, three Bangladeshis and one U.S. citizen of Bangladeshi origin.
Here’s what we know about the victims:
Indian national Tarishi Jain, 19, was a sophomore at University of California at Berkeley. She had started an internship at a bank in Dhaka just weeks ago.
She’d lived in Dhaka before, attending the American International School in Bangladesh’s capital while her father worked in the city as a textile merchant, UC Berkeley said Saturday.
“She was a smart and ambitious young woman with a big heart,” said Sanchita Saxena, director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Bangladesh Studies. “Our deepest condolences to her family, friends, and the entire Berkeley community.”
Fellow student Hannah Nguyen worked with Jain in the sales department of EthiCAL, a student-run apparel company.
“All of the times we had meetings, she had a way to make people feel happy, and she had a great spirit about her,” Nguyen said. “Her smile was contagious.”
Nguyen said her friend’s death makes terrorism more than a headline.
