Mali vows not to bow to terror after jihadist killings

Policemen stand near the La Terrasse restaurant -- seen in the backround with the blue curtains -- in Bamako on March 7, 2015, after five people were shot dead overnight in a suspected terror attackMali vowed Monday not to bow to terror and to punish the jihadists behind a deadly nightclub attack in the capital, as local and French investigators joined forces to hunt down the killers. Bamako has been on high alert since a heavily-armed gunman burst into La Terrasse, a popular venue among expatriates, early Saturday and killed five people, including a French national and a Belgian. A counter-terrorism team arrived from Paris overnight to join the investigation, with the assailant and a suspected accomplice still at large despite a huge manhunt and stepped-up vehicle checks across the capital. “We are still standing,” President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita said in a defiant first public reaction after visiting La Terrasse and eight people wounded in the attack, including two Swiss nationals.
