    A similar attack shook the West African country in August, when a suspected jihadist gunman killed 13 people – five of them UN employees – during a hostage siege in the central Malian town of Sevare.

    Ok, I guess this could be a continuaation of Paris.
    No coneections at this time confimred- gut historically

    Big diplomatic smummit there last week?

    Lots of French stuff here:

    World’s deadliest jihadists are not in Iraq or Syria — they’re in Mali

    oh brother, appernetly a signigant French angle here

    French forces won back the territory from al-Qaeda in early 2013 with more than 4500 soldiers in the region, according to Foreign Policy.
    But now that France has withdrawn most of its troops, Mali has become the deadliest place on the planet.

    This article says 3 gunmen arrived in a vehicle with diplomatic license plates.

    The hotel is a hub for tourists and expatriates. According to reports at least 9 were killed including French and Belgian citizens. Hostages are taken, including more foreigners.

    CNN reporting Chinese are among those staying at the hotel.

    Radisson hotel in Mali attacked; 170 hostages taken

    BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — The company that runs the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali's capital says assailants have taken 170 hostages in a brazen assault involving grenades.

    The Brussels-based Rezidor Hotel group said the assailants had "locked in" 140 guests and 30 employees.

    Malian army commander Modibo Nama Traore said 10 gunmen stormed the hotel Friday morning shouting "Allahu Akbar" or "God is great" in Arabic before firing on the guards and taking hostages.

    The U.S. and French embassies asked their citizens to take shelter where they are in Bamako
