Dhaka terror attack

Dhaka: The terrorists who massacred 20 foreigners and Bangladeshi at a popular cafe here were highly educated and most came from wealthy families, a minister said on Sunday.
"They are all highly educated young men and went to university. No one is from a madrassa," the Bangladeshi media quoted Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan as saying.
Asked why they would have become militants, The Daily Star quoted Khan as saying: "It has become a fashion."
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the massacre. The militants, who seized the cafe on Friday night, also killed two policemen. 
Six of the seven attackers were shot dead. A seventh was arrested.
