Raw: Bangladesh releases video of four more suspects linked to Dhaka cafe attack

Bangladesh’s anti-crime elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has released a video identifying four individuals who are suspected of being involved in early this month’s horrendous terror attack at a Spanish restaurant in capital Dhaka in which 18 foreigners were killed.
The video showed the individuals — three youths and a young lady — walking on the streets and the footpaths near the cafe in Dhaka’s diplomatic enclave Gulshan on the night of July 1 at about 8:42 p.m. (local time) when the terrorists stormed it.
On Tuesday afternoon the video was posted on a social media page of RAB. Many people have been requested to provide information on the suspects.
Nine Italians, seven Japanese, two Bangladeshis, an Indian and a Bangladeshi-born U.S. citizen were among the 20 people killed by the attackers on Friday night.
The gunmen also murdered two Bangladeshi police officers in the early hour of the attack.
Responsibility for the attack has been claimed by the Islamic State group. But Bangladesh has ruled out IS link to the deadly terror attack and once again blamed “homegrown” Islamist terrorists. Six of the gunmen were killed while one was captured and detained alive, who later died in a hospital.
