Mali – President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita has condemned the speed of the army’s response to Saturday’s attack on the village of Ogossagou in which more than 130 people died.
While visiting the scene of the massacre, Keita said: “I will not tolerate it taking more that two hours [for the military] to reach the scene. The vehicles of [the Malian army] must be constantly mobilised.
“We are not in peace time, we are in times of war.”
The attack on members of the Fulani ethnic group has been blamed on Dogon hunters.
But Dogon community members have denied this.
