Twenty bodies, including nine of Italians and seven Japanese nationals, were recovered from the crime scene the following day.The crisis ended following an army-led joint forces’ operation – ‘Operation Thunderbolt’. Two policemen and six militants, of whom one later appeared to be a staff of the Bakery who may not be involved in the attack, were also killed.
