The BBC reported:

Five people have been killed in a machine-gun and grenade attack on a nightclub in Mali’s capital, Bamako.

A BBC correspondent at the scene says a French national was shot dead at La Terrasse bar. Two Malian men were killed as the gunmen fled the scene.

A Belgian man died when a grenade was thrown at his car in a nearby street. A third European died in hospital.

Witnesses say the attackers shouted “God is Great” in Arabic (“Allahu Akbar”).

French President Francois Hollande strongly condemned the attack as “cowardly” and his foreign minister Laurent Fabius said it would strengthen the former colonial power’s resolve to “fight terrorism in all its forms”.
