Attack of militants on the representation of the EU military mission in Mali


According to eyewitnesses, four militants tried to break through to the mission of European military advisers through the main entrance of the hotel. The guards opened fire, killing one of the attackers. According to some information, while there was an exchange of fire in the hotel lobby, European officers were able to leave the premises where the consolidated army group in Mali was located. According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Mali, none of the European military personnel was injured.

The Malian police and special forces forces a few minutes after the start of the hotel’s security shootout with the terrorists cordoned off the hotel. As a result of the special operation, the two attackers managed to be detained. According to some reports, they were injured during the battle. What happened to another representative of the group who attacked the hotel in Bamako is not reported. Either there were three attackers, or the fourth managed to escape.

So far, none of the groups operating in Mali has claimed responsibility for the attack on the North-South hotel. However, the Bamako police are confident that the attack was carried out by the Al-Qaeda Maghreb terrorists.

It is necessary to add that the attack on the representation of the European military mission occurred 4 a month after the attack of terrorists on another Bamako hotel - "Radisson Blu". Then the authorities said that security measures in the center of the Malian capital will be significantly strengthened.

    Really strengthened - the attackers were not allowed to break into the hotel. Last time, I remember, the terrorists managed to take hostages, of which three dozen died.

        "Attack of militants on the representation of the EU military mission in Mali"
        Now the aircraft carrier will send daish to bomb. Three or four days. You still have to take revenge on Brussels, so be careful not to raise your head of European military power for at least a teraryuga for a week. P / S And try not to bomb the shed!

    There is a lot of talk about terrorists and terrorist acts in the media, maybe there is no need to talk about them, but to pursue them everywhere and just "kill" them.

    Well done, they quickly worked, interrogating the detainees with addiction (although unlikely) and reaching the organizers of the attack, followed by destruction.

    or the fourth managed to escape.

    And it is not surprising, because the "special forces" (if you can call it that) actively fumbled on mobile phones against the background of the killed terrorist. To be honest, I was amazed to see it on the news. Instead of doing business, a few blacks in gear were busy taking pictures.

    Yes, the terrorists don’t see the coast at all, living people do not need time for them to unite the world intelligence with the involvement of troops and start to extinguish these creatures before it is too late.

    Great attention needs to be paid to the terrorist training, propaganda centers and Internet resources. There are a lot of people absorbing this destructive ideology. And if you just deal with the elimination of bandits, they will not be less. In Mali, they just found a weak spot, and any place can be any place worldwide.

      A real fear for their life will bring them to their senses.
      The most serious problems lie ahead.
      Those "unknown" forces that organized the process of migration to the European Union will launch the process of chaos at the most opportune moment. Europe will spend the summer at home, fearing for its life and property. Tourism will become exotic.
      At least I think so.

    According to some reports, while there was a shootout in the hotel lobby, European officers were able to leave the premises where the representative office of the combined army group in Mali was located.

    European officers bravely draped, hiding behind the native allies. Ugh, warriors.
    I remember my business trip "to the south" and the development of the "Fortress" plan at the LDPE at an enviable frequency. We didn’t even think about evacuating from the air pressure gun - everything was focused only on repelling the attackers.

    And what kind of representation is the EU military mission, because the EU is like an economic union, or is it still military? what Cryptographers damn it.

    I wonder what such advisors can advise? "Do as I do! "- or" Do as I said! "? laughing
    The militants achieved their main goal - although physically "none of the European military personnel were injured," but here morally they are already dead bodies in the eyes of the local population!
