Soldiers gesture in front of La Terrase restaurant where militants killed five people, including a French citizen and a Belgian citizen, in a gun attack in Bamako

Militants have killed five people in a gun attack on a restaurant in Mali’s capital early on Saturday, among the dead was a French citizen and a Belgian security officer with the EU delegation in the country, authorities said. Reuters report:

Mali’s desert north, where French forces wrested control of territory from separatist rebels and al Qaeda-linked fighters, is plagued by frequent attacks. But this is the first such attack for years in Bamako in the south and raises fears that the capital will become targeted more by militants.

Three Malians were killed in and around La Terrasse restaurant, the government said. The attack began at around 1 a.m. (08.00 p.m. ET) and left nine people wounded, said a senior security official, adding that two people had been arrested.

“There were two individuals who were armed and hooded. One burst into the La Terrasse restaurant and opened fire on people. Then he got into a vehicle in which the other was waiting,” said senior police officer Falaye Kanté.

“As they fled down a neighboring street, they shot a Belgian man who was in front of his house. He’s dead. Not far away they came across a police vehicle and threw a grenade, killing the driver,” he told Reuters.
