The head of the UN armed forces, Minusma Mahamat Saleh Anadif, condemned the attack and said that every effort would be made to arrest the people behind him.

More than 13,000 international troops are in Mali to curb violence caused by various armed groups in the north and center of the country, including jihadists linked to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State group.
