Mali – Attacks against the Malian army (August 1 and 3, 2015)

France condemns the terrorist attacks carried out on August 1 near Nampala, which claimed the life of two Malian soldiers, and on August 3 in Gourma-Rharous, when 11 soldiers were killed. The perpetrators of these attacks must be brought to justice.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families as well as to the Malian authorities.

France supports the efforts of the Malian authorities, African partners and the United Nations to achieve lasting stability in Mali.
