  • Bangladeshi forces kill 11 suspected militants

The so-called Islamic State (IS) group said it carried out the attack, but Bangladesh believes that home-grown Islamists were responsible.

Dhaka regional commander of reconstituted Jamaatul Mujaheedin Bangladesh or Neo-JMB, Akash, was also among the dead militants, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told reporters.

Bangladeshi security officials on Saturday killed 11 suspected militants of the banned Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) in three separate raids as the country reinforced its counter-terrorism efforts.

The group's leader was among those killed in Dhaka, according to BBC.

Germany has been on edge after suffering two attacks claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria in July - an axe rampage on a train in Wuerzburg that injured five and a suicide bombing in Ansbach that left 15 wounded.

Police did not reveal where clowns have been sighted in Melbourne but have warned that anti-social behaviour will be investigated, said the Australian Associated Press.


In August, police shot Chowdhury dead along with two of his associates after they stormed an extremist hideout in Narayanganj city near Dhaka. "He'll be arrested anytime", Khan said.

Earlier in the day the elite Rapid Action Battalion launched two separate operations after being tipped off about the presence of Islamist extremists in a building in Gazipur, just outside Dhaka, and a three-storey structure in the northern district of Tangail. He is believed to be working with Ansar al-Islam.

Twenty hostages, two policemen and six suspects died during a 12-hour siege at the Holey Artisan cafe.

"We requested them to surrender but they opened fire at our officers instead and also exploded grenades, which prompted them to retaliate".

Long dormant after its top leaders were executed in March 2007, the JMB has recently regrouped with young, university-educated extremists taking the leadership.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said Saturday that her administration is determined to put an end to militancy and terrorism.
