By Meg Wagner, New York Daily News – “At least 27 people were killed when 10 Al Qaeda gunmen stormed the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali’s capital and took 170 hostages — but the grenade-toting assailants spared the Muslims inside.
The hostage situation ended Friday when Mali troops, backed by U.S. Special Forces and a unit from France, freed dozens of the hostages, including six Americans.
Security forces killed two of the militants during their rescue operation, and the troops are still battling the rest of the gunmen who are holed up in the five-star hotel.
‘The attackers no longer have hostages,’ Mali security ministry spokesman Amadou Sangho said. ‘They are alone with the Malian special forces who are trying to dislodge them.’
The gunmen arrived in a diplomatic car and locked in 140 guests and 30 employees inside the Bamako resort Friday morning. By the end of the bloody raid, 27 bodies were found inside the hotel after the attack, a U.N. peacekeeper said.
Al-Mourabitoun, an African Jihadist group affiliated with al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack.
The armed Islamic attackers, who shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they overran the resort, released hostages who were able to recite the Koran, a security source said.” Read more.
