Emory University Students Killed In Hostage Situation In Bangladesh — Muslims Spared

Emory University students Abinta Kabir, 19, and Faraaz Hossain, 21, were both killed in the hostage crisis in Bangladesh last Friday evening. They were visiting friends and family in Bangladesh and had gone out for the evening to Dhaka’s Holey Artisan Bakery, popular with expats in the capital city.

On her Facebook profile, Kabir listed herself as living in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and as being from there. According to Bustle, however, she was born in Miami. Abinta Kabir was a sophomore at Emory University’s Oxford College in Georgia. Her major area of study is not known at this time, but Oxford College is a liberal arts institute. Abinta was in the sophomore year of her studies in Emory University and should have graduated in 2019.
