Dakar - Authorities say gunmen have killed at least 10 soldiers
and wounded 38 in an attack on an army camp in Mali.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack early on Tuesday
in the city of Nampala.
An official with the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali said the
attackers arrived on dozens of pickup trucks and motorcycles and took control
of the city before leaving.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official
was not authorised to speak publicly about issues regarding Mali's army.
A Malian soldier confirmed the deaths but called the toll
provisional because not all soldiers had been accounted for.
