DHAKA: A Bangladeshi employee at the Dhaka cafe where 20 customers, including seven Japanese, were ruthlessly slain has said the Japanese were killed almost immediately.

In an exclusive interview with The Japan Times in the capital, the man, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of his own life, said he was hiding in a cold room with a “young” Japanese man who was later shot while he was able to escape.
