Nine Italians were killed and a 10th was listed as missing after militants attacked a restaurant in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka and took hostages, Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said Saturday.

The nine fatalities comprised four men and five women, Gentiloni told the press, adding that relatives had been notified. A tenth Italian was in the restaurant when the attack unfolded but was not among the 20 listed as dead, he said.
