Hostages killed in Mali hotel siege from South Africa, Russia, Ukraine

BAMAKO (Reuters) - The three hostages killed during a siege of a hotel in Mali used by United Nations staff were from South Africa, Russia and Ukraine, a Malian military spokesman said on Saturday.

Another four foreign nationals were freed when Malian forces stormed the hotel a day after suspected Islamist gunmen took over the building in the central town of Savere, the U.N. mission in Mali said earlier.
