Four killed in attack on Mali nightclub

  • A gun and grenade attack on a Mali night club has killed four people, including a French and Belgian national.

    Two Malian men were also killed as the assailants made their escape from the club in capital Bamako, reports said. The Belgian man died when a grenade was hurled at his car nearby.

    Witnesses reported seeing four men flee from the scene of the attacks. Two people were later arrested in connection to the incident. 

    African and French troops had intervened two years ago to stop Islamist fighters linked to al-Qaeda from advancing on Bamako.
