Malian soldiers’ bodies recovered after attack
The bodies of eight missing Malian soldiers have been found following a presumed jihadist attack on July 9, official sources told AFP yesterday. The soldiers were ambushed in Mali’s northeast and two escaped with their lives, but until now there had been no trace of the missing. “Eight soldiers missing after clashes with terrorists near Menaka have been found yesterday killed by bullets,” a senior army official told AFP. A local official in the area said eight bodies were found in Inkadogotane, 60 kilometers from the town of Menaka, and added that they were captured alive before being executed.
