Malian troops and soldiers from France’s Bakhane counter-terrorist force headed to the scene after the luxury Campement de Kangaba resort, which is frequented by top officials and foreigners, came under attack on Sunday.

Local residents reported hearing shots fired while smoke billowed into the air.

“It is a jihadist attack. Malian special forces intervened and about 20 hostages have been released,” Security Minister Salif Traore told the AFP news agency.

“Unfortunately for the moment there are two dead, including a Franco-Gabonese.”
