PARIS (Reuters) - There were no casualties among staff in an attack on a base for the European Union military training mission in Mali’s capital Bamako, the mission said on Monday.
“No EUTM-Mali personnel has been hurt,” the EU mission said on Twitter, adding it was now securing the area.
A witness said the attack targeted Bamako’s Nord-Sud Hotel which serves as headquarters for the mission of nearly 600 EU military personnel deployed to Mali to train its security forces.
