Four people have been killed and another is thought to be missing after terrorists stormed a popular holiday resort in Mali. Dozens of people were taken hostage during the attack on Sunday night but were released on Monday after security services stormed the complex near the Malian capital of Bamako.
A Portuguese member of the EU’s military training mission was among the dead according to foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. A Malian member of the EU’s delegation was also killed.
The resort was still cordoned off by late morning on Monday as a Malian anti-terrorist squad combed the area for the missing person. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
