DHAKA: Bangladesh police stormed a militant hideout outside Dhaka Saturday, shooting dead three Islamist extremists, including the suspected mastermind of a horrific attack on a cafe that killed 22 mostly foreign hostages last month. The three bodies were retrieved after police staged an hour-long gun battle with extremists in Narayanganj, a city 25 kilometers (16 miles) south of Dhaka, officers said. “Tamim Chowdhury is dead. He is the Gulshan attack mastermind and the leader of JMB (Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh),” senior police officer Sanwar Hossain told Agence France-Presse.
