A hostage-taking in Dakha, Bangladesh ended with a police assault that killed six terrorists and captured one alive after 20 hostages were killed, according to CNN. Thirteen hostages were rescued.

The terrorists used guns, knives and explosives in taking hostages in a restaurant in the part of Dakha were many foreigners congregate.

I await Donald Trump's solution. For now, I'm just happy to confirm that the Arkansan I know who does business in Bangladesh was home in Little Rock last night. He eats at the targeted cafe regularly and will be in city next week.
