Gunmen took at least 20 foreigners hostages Friday at a restaurant in the upscale diplomatic zone of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, according to local media.
The U.S. State Department reported a "hostage situation" at the location. In Washington, State Department spokesman John Kirby said there was "100% accountability" of Americans working at the embassy, but he would not elaborate on whether all were out of harm's way.
