ATLANTA (AP) - Emory University says a vigil is planned to remember two students killed when a group of armed extremists stormed a restaurant in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The university said in a statement that the “Vigil for Dhaka” is set for 1 p.m. Thursday in Cannon Chapel on the Atlanta campus.

Emory officials have said Faraaz Hossain and Abinta Kabir were killed in the Saturday morning attack on a restaurant in Bangladesh’s capital that left 28 dead.

Kabir was entering Emory’s Oxford College as a sophomore. She was visiting family and friends in Bangladesh at the time of the attack. Hossain was a student at the university’s Goizueta Business School in Atlanta.

Emory spokeswoman Elaine Justice says Kabir was a sophomore from Miami and Hossain was from Dhaka.
