DHAKA - All 20 victims of an attack on an upmarket cafe in Dhaka were foreigners, the spokesman for the Bangladesh army said on Saturday.

Colonel Rashidul Hasan said he could not yet confirm the nationalities of those who had died, most of whom were killed by sharp weapons.

The gunmen, shouting "Allahu Akbar", attacked the Dhaka cafe and killed 20 people inside before police stormed the building on Saturday and rescued 13 hostages, Bangladesh officials said.

Seven Italians were in the cafe when the attack started, including several working in Bangladesh in the garment industry, Italian media have reported.
