The Monday edition of Bangladeshi newspaper The Daily Star features photos of the suspected attackers of the Gulshan café siege in the capital Dhaka that killed 22 people, including 17 foreigners.
In this second day of a two-day national mourning in Bangladesh, the newspaper published the photos of the suspected attackers that have were first posted by US-based Site Intelligence, which monitors jihadi activities, saying the images were released by global terror group Islamic State (ISIS).
Under the photographs, The Daily Star provided some of the initial details of the attackers, culled from both official sources and social media users. Most of the suspected attackers had been reported missing for several months by their loved ones, and were from relatively well-off families.
The assault began on Friday evening, as gunmen burst into the Holey Artisan Bakery and Oâ€™ Kitchen Restaurant in Dhakaâ€™s upscale neighborhood Gulshan, shouting â€˜Allahu Akbarâ€™, and taking the employees and customers hostage. Later, the assailants killed two policemen who had tried to end the siege
Twenty hostages were found dead Saturday on the premises, a popular address for tourists. Nine of the victims were from Italy, seven from Japan, an Indian citizen and three Bangladeshis, one of whom was also a US citizen.
Thirteen hostages were rescued. The Bangladesh Army said six attackers had been killed and another captured alive during the rescue operation.

Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce is looking to smash the speed record of electrical flights with a newly designed 23-foot-long model. Christened the Spirit of Innovation, the small plane took off for the first time earlier this month and successfully managed a 15-minute long test flight. However, the company has announced plans to fly the machine faster than 300 mph (480 km/h) before the year is out, and also to sell similar propulsion systems to companies developing electrical air taxis or small commuter planes.
