Emory University has learned that two Emory students, Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain, were among those taken hostage and murdered by terrorists yesterday in the attack in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Abinta, who was from Miami, was a rising sophomore at Emory’s Oxford College. Faraaz, who was from Dhaka, was a 2016 graduate of Oxford College and a student at the university’s Goizueta Business School. The Emory community mourns this tragic and senseless loss of two members of our university family. Our thoughts and prayers go out on behalf of Faraaz and Abinta and their families and friends for strength and peace at this unspeakably sad time. In the wake of this terrible loss, the university is offering support to members of our community through counseling services.
