Police in Bangladesh killed three suspected militants Saturday, including a man they identified as a Canadian accused of masterminding a deadly attack on a cafe in Dhaka last month. Police raided a two-story house in Narayanganj district near Dhaka and killed the suspects early Saturday. The dead included Tamim Chowdhury, a Bangladeshi-born Canadian, who police believe was one of two masterminds of the July 1 attack on a popular restaurant in Dhaka that left 20 people dead.
Tamim identified himself as Shaykh Abu Ibrahim Al-Hanif, the "Amir of the Khilafah's Soldiers in Bengal," in the 12th issue of Islamic State's propaganda magazine Dabiq in November last year. According to police, Tamim masterminded the Gulshan and Sholakia attacks.

Bangladeshi Police announced a 20 lakh ($ 30k) bounty on Tamim on August 1.
