Three U.S. college students were among those killed in Bangladesh after a terror attack at an artisan bakery in Dhaka’s diplomatic district late Friday.
Islamic State gunmen stormed the bakery and reportedly singled out foreigners who could not recite the Islamic Koran.
Emory University confirmed two of their students, Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain, were among the victims. Kabir was a rising sophomore who was visiting family and friends when she was taken hostage and killed. Faraaz was a junior from Dhaka who graduated from Emory’s Oxford College and was attending its Goizueta Business School.
