Nine Italians and seven Japanese nationals were among the 20 killed in an Islamist attack on a cafe in Bangladesh on Friday night. Militants stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery cafe in Dhaka and held staff and customers hostage for about 12 hours before army commandos launched a rescue operation. Jill McGivering reports. Through the night police tried to negotiate with the militants, but in the end commandos stormed the cafe, where late on Friday about eight young men armed with guns and knives opened fire on diners and then took hostages. It's an upmarket European-style cafe in a district popular with foreigners. Many of the dead were Italian and Japanese. The mass murder of foreigners is unprecedented in Bangladesh. The so-called Islamic State group said it was behind the attack.

His predecessors Mullah Omar and Mullah Akhtar Mansoor had also not totally rejected peace talks with the Afghan government. But they had insisted that foreign forces leave Afghanistan and Sharia law form the basis of any future constitution.
Tens of thousands have been protesting in central London against Britain's decision to leave the EU. One organiser said protestors hoped to stop the government from triggering artical 50, which begins the formal process of withdrawing from the EU. While Brexit was backed by a majority of the electorate, voters in the capital strongly supported the Remain campaign, and some want a rerun. It's fairly evident that their result doesn't reflect the entire population. I think there seem to be a vast number of people who on the basis of the result and what's happened since are evidently feeling that they've made the wrong decision. They weren't fully informed. We voted to remain. But I'm shocked at how many people who have turned around and say that if voters were going to look like this, we're going to be doing this.

Reports from Syria say that government shelling and air strikes have killed at least 25 people in the rebel-held town of Jayrud, northeast of Damascus. The attack came a day after Islamist rebels captured and killed a Syrian airforce pilot in the area. Our Middle East analyst Alan Johnston reports. Reports from Jayrud say there were dozens of air and artillery strikes. The places hit included a school and a residential area, and several medical workers are said to be among the dead. On Friday a government pilot was forced to bail out of his warplane and parachute to the ground near Jayrud. He was captured by Islamist militants and soon put to death.
