Armed attackers stormed a restaurant in Bangladesh's capital on Friday and have taken an unknown number of hostages.

Police and the gunmen exchanged fire and at least two officers have died.

"We want to resolve this peacefully. We are trying to talk to the attackers," BBC News quotes Benazir Ahmed, chief of the Rapid Action Battalion, Bangladesh's elite police force, as saying.
