    Gunmen have stormed a popular cafe in the diplomatic area of the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, taking a number of hostages, officials say.
    Several foreigners are among those being held by eight or nine men in the city's Gulshan district, they add.
    A police officer has been killed and at least five others injured in a gun battle, a spokesman said.

    6 to 8 attackers - 20 hostages is the report CNN has posted for awhile.

    An ex-pat area, or, an area that has lots of ex-pats with a popular bakery that has items that taste like those at home in America.

    What a surprise, not!

    A group of up to nine attackers took hostages inside a restaurant frequented by both locals and foreigners in a diplomatic zone in Bangladesh's capital of Dhaka, local media report.

    Bangladesh TV stations reported that the attackers entered the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka's Gulshan area around 9:20 p.m. Friday and were holding customers and staff hostage.

    The TV reports said the identities of the attackers were not immediately known.

    A huge contingent of security guards cordoned off the area and the restaurant as they traded gunfire with the attackers, who set off explosions, reports say. Three policemen were wounded.

    Quoting a kitchen staff worker at the restaurant who escaped the attack, Jamuna Television reported that the gunmen chanted "Allahu Akbar" (God Is Great) as they launched the attack.

    Ahmed, chief of the Rapid Action Battalion, said: “We believe we can resolve this peacefully.
    Some derailed youths have entered the restaurant and launched the attack. We have talked to some of the people who fled the restaurant after the attack,” Ahmed said. “We are trying to talk to the attackers, we want to listen to them about what they want.”

    This is ALL so silly to me! Media going nuts "they have taken responsiblity".

    What on earth do we expect them do ?

    In any of these, say we had nothing to do with a major terrorist attack.

    Even tho we hate your guts, we had nothing to do with these massive attacks??

    Like these are a group of people (tiny--- in terms of muslim faith) that are honest law abiding folks?

    Bunch of nonsense imo Of course they are going to say they did this moo

    Silly......

    All this "stepping up" security for July 4th.

    There is no security, againist folks that are fine to blow themselves up into chunks. - peroid.

    Cars kill many. Its a risk. How it works. Dont drive, or go out, or do so and realize life is risky - being "safe" impossible moo.

    It is living moo...........................

    I cant stand when they do this! 8 months ago, our forces killed Hotdogarshimi-Relishaktar-Mustardla Dijon-Hamburgerish.

    Shortly there afterwards, our forces captured Toyataishlimi - Honda Rakis- Chevyritazrollie .

    After that sucesss, Sheltieorski- Huskyaramai- Germansheppard-Orishikampopi, vowed revenge.

    Any of us have a clue what they are talking about??

    Not me!

    All TV networks across Bangladesh have stopped live coverage at the request of police, local media websites report.

    Media outlets have been requested not to publish the names or nationalities of probable hostages for their safety.

    Good. The main weapon and goal of terrorists is publicity, as it's the most effective way to spread terror.

    We think this attack might be organized by Bedsheetishm-Comforteraraski-Cottonushimiuske.
