Hotels attacked

7 Aug, 2015

Unknown rebels arrive on motorbikes and attack the Debo, Motel and Flandres, in the town of Savare, in Mali. The hotels are frequented by foreigners, including guests from France, South Africa and Ukraine. Residents say they saw one dead body lying on the street outside one of the hotels. The military arrives later to retake control of the town. Resident:

This morning as I was leaving for work I heard shots and saw smoke coming from the Hotel Debo. The area is surrounded by soldiers who told us to return to our homes.
