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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
