Muslim jihadists kill 54 soldiers in terrorist attack on remote outpost in Mali
- Mali government says at least 54 people died following a jihadist attack on army
- Miltary initially said at least 15 were dead following Friday attack in Menaka area
- Relatives say soldiers are not being adequately protected on the ground
The Malian government says at least 54 people are dead following a jihadist attack on the army in the north.
The revised death toll from government spokesman Yaya Sangare came a day after the military initially announced at least 15 dead following Friday’s attack in the Menaka region.
The new violence is expected to further raise tensions in the capital, Bamako, where military families have already protested in the streets.
Relatives say that soldiers are not being adequately protected on the ground as they face an array of jihadist groups (pictured: Malian army soldiers, pro-government militia members and former rebels in Gao, northern Mali 2017)
