At least 21 people have been reported dead or missing after an attack on a village in central Mali that was the scene last year of the country’s worst civilian massacre in recent years.
The Malian government said the armed men burned homes and looted livestock in the village of Ogossagou, a village of Fulani herders in the central Mopti region, during the attack on Friday morning.
The government statement did not say who carried out the attack.
Hamadou Dicko from Fulani association Tabital Pulaaku put the death toll at 22 minimum.
“They came and shot everything that moved,” he said.
