Two French Soldiers Killed in North Mali
London, July 1, 2018, (AltAfrica) – Two French soldiers were killed in an attack in Mali Sunday, according to the Defense Ministry.
At least a dozen others were wounded, including between four and eight French soldiers, when a car bomb detonated, reportedly targeting a French and Malian patrol which then came under fire.
The attack comes just days after Islamist militants raided the headquarters of a five-nation African force in Bamako, leaving six people dead.
