Allahu Akbar

Mali: 10 soldiers killed in attack on army camp in north

The attackers came on motorcycles around 5 a.m. into Gourma-Rharouss, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) southeast of of the northern city of Timbuktu, said resident Moussa Cisse.

"They killed 10 soldiers, including a lieutenant. They burned two Malian army vehicles before leaving the village," he said.

A soldier said the men cried out "Allahu Akbar" as they left. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to speak to the press.

It was the third attack in N'Djamena in less than a month — a spate of violence widely believed to have been organized by Nigeria-based Islamic extremists.

"After the explosion, the provisional toll is 15 dead including the bomber," police spokesman Paul Manga said.

The victims included five men and nine women who worked at the market, Manga said, adding that 74 people were injured.
