PARIS (Reuters) - At least six soldiers were killed in an attack on a compound housing the headquarters of the west African regional G5 Sahel task-force in central Mali, the mayor of the town of Mopti said on Friday.
An unknown number of assailants using rockets and a vehicle rigged with explosives attacked the compound with some engaging in a gunfight with Malian forces, a Mali defence ministry spokesman said.
