Scores of guests still hostage in Mali siege: hotel group

Malian troops outside the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako on November 20, 2015Gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in Mali on Friday, seizing 170 guests and staff including many foreigners in a hail of automatic gunfire, exactly a week after the deadly jihadist rampage in Paris. Dozens of hostages managed to escape the early morning raid, but 138 people were trapped in the besieged Radisson Blu hotel in the Malian capital Bamako and the security ministry said at least three people had been killed. There was no immediate confirmation of any link to the devastating Paris attacks last Friday that left 130 people dead, but Mali has been at the centre of French military operations against Islamists in north Africa.
