Marking the first anniversary of the terror attack at a cafe in the Gulshan area of Dhaka, Bangladesh observed a tribute to those slain a year ago.
Foreign delegates, activists and family members visited the Holey Artisan Bakery, where 22 civilians and two police officers were killed. A majority of the victims were foreign nationals.
Since the attack, the Bangladesh government has launched a crackdown against militants operating out of the country, with several of them already captured and executed.
The attack was described as the worst in the country’s history.
