Bangladesh seeks to detain two over July cafe attack that killed 20

DHAKA Police in Bangladesh will bring to court on Thursday two men held over their suspected involvement in an attack claimed by militant group Islamic State on a cafe in the capital, Dhaka, that killed 20 hostages, mostly foreigners.

Gunmen stormed the cafe last month in one of the most brazen attacks in the South Asian nation's history, killing non-Muslims and foreigners - including Italians, Japanese and an American - before security forces ended the 12-hour siege.
