Sun Jan 26th, 2020 - Akwa Ibom

Fifteen members of Mali’s security forces died in a jihadist assault on Sunday at a camp in the centre of the country, military and local sources said.

“At least 15 Malian militaries were killed Sunday in the Sokolo military camp during an attack by terrorists,” a Malian military source told AFP.

A local lawmaker said all those killed were gendarmes, or paramilitary police officers, adding that he saw “two other bodies outside the camp.”
