Suspected jihadists attacked a hotel resort Sunday in Mali’s capital, taking hostages at a spot popular with foreigners on the weekends. At least two people were killed as the assault continued into the evening, authorities said. Gunfire first rang out at the Campement Kangaba on the outskirts of Bamako in the late afternoon, according to a security official. Malian soldiers later succeeded in entering the resort area, said Commandant Modibo Traore of the Malian special forces in the former French colony.
