Hostage-taking in the capital of Mali


Local authorities say that the majority of hotel guests Radisson Hotel Bamako - Foreign citizens. This, apparently, was the main reason why the terrorists chose a hotel in the center of Bamako. Information Agency Xinhua reports that among the hostages in the hotel may be citizens of the People’s Republic of China. In addition, the report says that the militants began to release those hostages who were able to quote verses from the Koran.

It should be recalled that this is the second case of hostage-taking in Mali in the last more than three months. So, hostages were captured in a hotel in the city of Sevare. Then 13 people died, two of whom turned out to be citizens of Ukraine, representing the UN special mission.

        It seems that they will be activated everywhere and it is necessary to seize the initiative, otherwise there will be a lot of innocent blood.

            Confucius must be quoted in writing. It’s more reliable, otherwise the words will be jagged to the point ... that it would bounce off the teeth ...

      This is to ensure that the flow of refugees from North and Central Africa does not dry out. This terror will cause a new wave of migration towards Geyropa, which erases a new number of ISIS supporters for carrying out terrorist acts.

      Former French colony, where probably half of the citizens have French citizenship. The northeastern part of the Republic of Mali is controlled by Islamists from the Ansar al-Din group affiliated with al-Qaeda, the unrecognized Independent State of Azawad was previously proclaimed here.

        "... с криками «Аллах акбар!»
        Никак не могу понять той уверенности, с которой выступают исламские священнослужители: "Это, не ислам!" Ну не с криками-же "Да придет Царствие Твоё...!" взрывы гремят и заложники берутся. Значит, что?! Правильно! Недоработка, а это надо признавать!

And in the autumn of 1944, the group did not find any traces of the partisan movement in the Czech Republic and was forced to leave for Slovakia .. . So they fought with the invaders ...

    It’s online on the merchant’s website: the militants entered the hotel territory in a car with diplomatic numbers, among the hostages are the French military, employees of Air France and the Thales international company, they have already released several hostages from among those who were able to quote the Koran.
    The Russian Embassy in Bamako said that Russians could be in the seized hotel.
    IMHO, it’s right that someone told the tale not so long ago that terrorism goes global ... symptoms in reality!

    that the militants began to free those hostages who were able to quote verses from the Koran.

    It turns out that what is happening is absolutely what the officials of the Russian Federation and many political scientists in Europe and the Russian Federation have repeatedly said, in other words, they are confronting the perverted religion of Islam with other religions. And the most terrible and long wars on earth were just religious.
    After all, it’s not strange, but all these captures and explosions are somehow suspiciously allowed and not directly, but they are interconnected with the situation in the world. And if you look at the map, Europe is essentially surrounded on all sides by pockets of tension.

    so this terrorist action was paid for by oligarchs from the EU and the USA, and the mythical Gladio organizes everything. Then it turns out that the fighters were of European-American nationality
