Italian Premier Matteo Renzi says Italians are among the victims of the Dhaka attack, but he won't give details or the toll until families are notified.

Renzi told reporters Saturday "we followed the events" in Dhaka "all night hoping for a different outcome," and added that a government plane was flying to Dhaka.

Italian news reports say about 10 or 11 Italians were inside the cafe when attack began.
