Mali: Militant attack leaves more than two dozen killed

Twenty-six people were killed in an attack on a village in central Mali, officials said Saturday, in the latest violence to hit the West African nation. 

Friday’s attack targeted a Fulani village named Binedama in the volatile Mopti region, said Aly Barry, an official from Tabital Pulaaku, a Fulani association in Mali.

Two women and a nine-year-old girl were killed in the attack, he said.

The attack also comes at a time of increasing insecurity in Mali. The region has also seen several massacres and kidnappings recently, including a militant attack on rural villages that left 12 people dead in April.
