    DHAKA: The jihadists who slaughtered 20 hostages at a Dhaka restaurant were members of a homegrown Bangladeshi militant outfit and not followers of the Islamic State group, a senior minister said Sunday.

    “They are members of the Jamaeytul Mujahdeen Bangladesh,” Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan told Agence France-Presse, referring to a group which has been banned in Bangladesh for more than a decade. “They have no connections with the Islamic State.” AFP
