At least 10 soldiers have been killed in the northern Mali region of Timbuktu in an apparent terrorist attack against their camp.

“This morning at [the town of] Gourma-Rharous, we pushed back a terrorist attack, which caused 10 deaths in our ranks,” said a military source.

Another military source confirmed the attack, saying it had targeted a unit of the National Guard based in the town.

The second source said the attackers were believed to be elements linked to the so-called Ansar Dine group, which were designated by the United Nations (UN) as a foreign terrorist organization back in 2013.
