Mali Army foils attack on military camp

Malian army says it has thwarted a new attack on a military camp in the centre of the country, two days after a deadly suicide attack in a strategic garrison town near the capital.

A high-ranking official from the Sevare camp, speaking on condition of anonymity, told newsmen that the situation is under control, also noting that a terrorist was neutralized.

On Friday, Mali said it had repelled a suicide raid by Al-Qaeda-linked jihadists of the Katiba Macina group with two vehicle-borne bombs that killed at least one soldier in Kati, the heart of the Malian military establishment.
