134 killed in attack on Fulani villagers in Mali
"Armed men reportedly dressed as traditional hunters have killed 134 people, including women and children, during an attack on a village in central Mali.
A further 55 civilians were hurt in the attack in Ogossagou in the Mopti region.
The region's Fulani ethnic community is frequently targeted and accused of having ties to jihadist organizations in the area, according to the UN.
The Malian government said it "reiterates its determination to make every effort to hunt down the perpetrators of this barbarity of another age and to punish them, in accordance with the laws in force."
"In the same spirit, the government will continue to ensure the protection of the people, to recreate the conditions of true social cohesion and to promote national reconciliation," it added, saying the "government condemns with the utmost severity this heinous act and expresses its compassion to the families of the innocent victims."
For the moment I don't understand the situation in Mali enough to have a clear understanding of what happened but it seems awful. People were shot dead or killed with machetes. Apparently some people have been burned and they disemboweled pregnant women.
