10 soldiers killed, 38 wounded in attack on Mali army base


DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — 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 Tuesday in the city of Nampala.

An official with the U.N. 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 authorized 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.
