BREAKING : Deadliest attack, unknown gunmen storms military base, kill 53 soldiers

Terrorists have killed 53 soldiers in one of the deadliest attacks on a military outpost in Mali. 
The attack occurred Friday, November 1st in Indelimane, Menaka region, northeast of the country.
A civilian was also killed at the outpost close to the border with Niger, the country’s communication minister Yaya Sangare said on Twitter. 
“The situation is under control. A search and the process of identifying the bodies is continuing,” he added, after giving the latest update on the death toll.  
He said 10 survivors were found at the outpost, which suffered “significant” damage. No further details of the attack were given.

The Malian government earlier condemned the “terrorist attack,” saying it had left numerous dead or wounded but without giving a precise toll. “Reinforcements have been dispatched to secure the area and hunt down the attackers,” the statement added. 

No group immediately claimed responsibility for Friday’s assault. It comes a month after two jihadist assaults killed 40 soldiers near the border with Burkina Faso, however several sources said the death toll had been down played. The deadly assault sparked protests outside a military camp in the country’s capital Bamako.  

Mali’s army has been struggling in the face of a jihadist revolt that has spread from the arid north to its centre, an ethnically mixed and volatile region.

The recent assaults are also a humiliation for the so-called G5 Sahel force a much-trumpeted initiative under which five countries created a joint 5,000-man anti-terror force and for France, which is committed to shoring up the fragile region.
