Terrorists kill 9 in Mali

At least nine people were killed on Friday in a militant attack that took place in the Malian town of Tenenkou, medical sources from NGOs said. The sources said nine people have been killed, including three attackers. The rest were local residents and soldiers, although no official source has confirmed this information.

Traders and villagers told Efe that the jihadis launched a surprise attack Friday, in the morning, and fired gunshots while shouting Allahu Akbar(God is great).

Military troops and a large number of citizens then fled the scene of the attack. The attackers seized key positions in the city and destroyed some means of communications, affecting contact with Bamako. The same town had been attacked by jihadis earlier Jan 8.  UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali has sent troops to expel the jihadis from the city. This attack is similar to one that was launched Jan 5 in Nampala in the northern region.
