Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has condemned the Dhaka restaurant attack by militants who took dozens hostage and vows to fight what she calls terrorist attacks that have rattled Bangladesh.

“It was an extremely heinous act. What kind of Muslims are these people? They don`t have any religion,” the Bangladesh PM says in a televised speech. “People must resist these terrorists. My government is determined to root out terrorism and militancy from Bangladesh.”

Bangladesh security forces ended a siege on Saturday at a cafe in Dhaka killing at least six of the attackers and rescuing 13 captives including foreigners at the end of the 10-hour standoff. Seven Japanese are unaccounted for.
