330 Soldiers?! Shit that's an old school Armor BN Headquarters and Headquarters Company! And what the hell C-17 and a drone take 90 people? I'm guessing a fair amount of security forces with that.

Anyways, glad it's you guys fighting these hajis for a change. Enjoy the US battle taxi service!

Mali tourist resort 'under attack'

5 minutes ago


A tourist resort in Mali popular with Westerners is under attack by gunmen, a spokesman at the security ministry has told Reuters.

Nearby residents reported hearing shots fired at the luxury destination.

The spokesman said the attack was ongoing at Le Campement resort in Dougourakoro, to the east of the capital Bamako.

Malian troops and soldiers from France's Bakhane counter-terrorist force are at the site.

There was no information immediately available on casualties.

This breaking news story is being updated and more details will be published shortly. Please refresh the page for the fullest version.



And this is on the heels of activity yesterday:

Soldiers killed in attack on Mali military camp

Five soldiers killed, eight wounded in an attack in northern region, which is frequently attacked by armed fighters.

At least five soldiers have been killed in an attack on an army post in northern Mali, according to the country's military.

Eight others were also wounded in the attack in Bintagoungou early on Saturday, Colonel Diarran Kone, spokesman for the Malian Army, told the Associated Press news agency.

An Army statement said nine vehicles were destroyed in the attack, which took place around 80km from the historic city of Timbuktu.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

"All the camp's military material was ransacked," a local official told the AFP news agency.

A resident had earlier said that there were "no Malian soldiers to be seen - the camp has been laid waste. The jihadists left with military hostages."

Northern Mali continues to fall prey to attacks by armed groups.

On June 8, at least three UN peacekeepers from Guinea were killed in an assault near their base in Kidal.

The Group to Support Islam and Muslims, a fusion of three armed groups with previous al-Qaeda links that is also known as Jamaat Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen in Arabic, claimed that attack.

Formed in March and led by Iyad Ag Ghaly, a former leader of the Ansar Dine group, the group has claimed multiple attacks on domestic and foreign forces since its formation, notably the 12,000-member MINUSMA, the UN force in Mali.

MINUSMA began operations in 2013, providing security to and assisting Malian troops in a region which fell to armed groups linked to al-Qaeda in March 2012.

Although a French-led military intervention the following year drove the groups out of key towns, they have since spread further south.

The unrest has continued despite a 2015 peace deal between the government and Tuareg-led rebels offering partial autonomy to the north.

The violence has also prompted five West African countries, known as G5 Sahel, to call for the creation of a regional military force by the end of this year.

On Thursday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the wave of attacks shows a "growing spillover of instability" into Mali's neighbouring countries, and demonstrated the need "for enhanced regional cooperation".

At this point there are a number of places in the world that I would never willingly take a vacation to: Mali, North Africa, anywhere in the Middle East, and Berkeley. ;-)
