10 Malian soldiers killed in army convoy ambush

Bamako (IINA) � At least 10 Malian soldiers were killed and nine others wounded in an ambush on a military convoy in central Mali.

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Diarran Kone said the convoy was hit on Tuesday between the towns of Diabaly and Nampala, The Associated Press reported.

While there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, suspicion fell on the militant groups operating in Mali's increasingly violent central region.

Over the last week, witnesses have spoken of dozens of extremists circulating in the area. Malian soldiers and UN peacekeepers are frequent targets of such attacks.
