Two Malian soldiers were killed and four others injured in a suicide car bomb in Mali’s north, a military official said Sunday.
Two attackers died in the blast on Saturday, which also killed a motorcyclist suspected of involvement in the bombing, the Ministry of Defence said.
The attack targeted a unit of the Malian army in Amakoudji, a village about 45 kilometres north of the city of Gao.
“We believe these are the elements of MUJWA,” an army official told dpa over the phone from Gao, referring to the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa.
MUJWA used to control Gao until January, when a French-led military intervention ousted Islamist rebels from their main strongholds in the north.
In February, two suicide attacks hit Gao, the largest city in Mali’s north.
Peace be upon you, my brothers and sisters in faith. It is a great sin in bible and Quran for people to commit suicide bombing in killing people.
These Anti -ISLAN who commit suicide bombing in Nigeria and Northan Mali in the name as movement for unity and jihad in west Africa,”MUJWA”.ISLAM CONDEMN any act of killing. The Quran teaches ‘whoever kill a life or soul of some one has kill a nation and whoever save a life or soul of some one has save a nation. (HOLY Quran 5.32). The group “mujwA” ,are the ignorant of Islam who do not study the Quran and hadith of the prophet (saw).
We muslimsagainstterror.com offer our condelence to those victims killed in suicide bombing in Norther mali for Allah (swt) to be with their family during these difficult time.(ameen).
We pray for peace, love ,freedom and security to return to Norther mali ,Nigeria etc in the name of Allah our lord we pray (amin).
