The terrorist attack on Holey Artisan Bakery, a trendy eatery popular with expats, was carried out by a group of young Islamist militants on July 1, 2016 amid a surge in extremism across the globe. The militants slaughtered and shot dead 20 diners, including nine Italians, seven Japanese, a US citizen and an Indian. Although the bakery is opened to the public every year on the anniversary of the attack, this time only ambassadors and the other related people were allowed to visit the site due to the pandemic.
