DHAKA - Bangladesh security forces ended a siege Saturday at a cafe in Dhaka where dozens of diners were being held captive and shot dead six of the hostage-takers, officials said.
"The operation is over. The situation is completely under control," army spokesman Colonel Rashidul Hasan told AFP.
Tuhin Mohammad Masud, a commander of the elite Rapid Action Battalion which stormed the cafe, said there had been a number of casualties, including six hostage-takers.
"We have gunned down six of the terrorists. The main area that they have been occupying has been cleared," Masud told India's Times Now television channel.
