Bangladesh police kill alleged militant tied to Dhaka attack

NEW DELHI – Bangladesh police launched an overnight raid and killed a man who allegedly trained the Islamist militants believed to have carried out the July hostage-taking in Dhaka's diplomatic quarter that left 20 people dead including 17 foreigners.

Details of the Friday night raid in Dhaka's Mirpur neighborhood emerged slowly, and authorities on Saturday confirmed the death of a man they identified as Murad, saying he also went by Jahangir and Omar. They are still trying to determine his full identity.
