Mali – Terrorist attack (18 June 2017)


France utterly condemns the deadly attack carried out on June 18 against the Campement Kangaba tourist resort near Bamako.

The ministry’s crisis and support center and our embassy in Mali - in close collaboration with the Malian authorities - are continuing to carry out checks to determine if any French nationals are among the casualties. Efforts to find a compatriot who has been reported missing are ongoing.

France extends its condolences to the victims’ families and wishes the injured a speedy recovery. It pays tribute to the swift action and professionalism of the Malian forces sent to the area.

In the wake of this cowardly attack targeted against this popular getaway for Malians and foreign nationals, France reaffirms its determination to combat terrorism and promote the stability of Mali and the Sahel, together with its partners in the region.
