Tendrils of terrorism spread in Asia

One of Bangladesh's worst terrorist attacks, in which 20 patrons of a Dhaka restaurant were butchered by militants, highlights Asia's growing threat from Islamist violence. Among those killed were seven Japanese aid workers, including an 80-year-old railway expert, nine Italians, one Indian and a U.S. national. Terrorist attacks this year from Jakarta to Pathankot, India, have served as a reminder of the growing scourge of jihadism in Asia.
