Japan to add more terrorism analysts after Dhaka attack

TOKYO -- The Japanese government decided Monday to ramp up an anti-terrorism unit's intelligence-gathering capabilities in response to the recent incident in Bangladesh.

The information collection and analysis unit draws staffers from the foreign and defense ministries as well as the National Police Agency and the Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office. It now has about 20 people stationed abroad, with another 20 or so traveling overseas from Tokyo to gather information. The unit will strengthen its presence in the Middle East and Asia, though the scale of the expansion has yet to be determined.
