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.
