Authorities in Mali on Thursday apprehended two suspects in connection with last week’s attack at a hotel in the country’s capital Bamako in which at least 20 people were killed, the BBC reported.
The nature of the two detainees’ involvement in last Friday’s attack, when a pair of gunmen held 170 people hostage at Bamako’s Radisson Blu Hotel, is not yet clear.
Two rival terrorist groups, both affiliated with al-Qaeda, have claimed responsibility for the attack, as has a Malian militant group called the Macina Liberation Front (LWF).
However, none of these claims have been verified.
