Mali gunman on run after failed attack on EU training HQ

Malian police officer stand guard in a street near a hotel in Bamako hosting an EU military training mission a day after an attack on March 22, 2016Security forces in Mali said Tuesday they were hunting a fugitive gunman wounded in a failed attack on the headquarters of the European Union’s military training mission in the capital. An unknown number of gunmen attempted to force their way into the Azalai Nord-Sud hotel, where the EU mission is based, in Bamako’s upmarket ACI 2000 neighbourhood on Monday night, but were held back by return fire from security guards, with one attacker shot dead. A European military source said Tuesday the dead gunman was just 16 years old, reflecting a growing trend of young, sub-Saharan Africans staging attacks on hotels and symbolic Western targets in Mali, where once Arab and Tuareg fighters dominated.
