20 killed in suspected jihadist attack in Mali: sources

What you need to know:

  • The deaths came after more than 100 people including many civilians died in recent months as a result of attacks by rival armed groups.
  • A local official in the town of Talataye said late Sunday that the assailants arrived in three vehicles and on a motorcycle.
  • But large tracts of the country remain lawless despite a peace accord signed with ethnic Tuareg leaders in mid-2015 aimed at isolating the jihadists.
