Four Mali troops killed in attack blamed on militants , Aug 27, 2020
the army said, blaming the attack on who launched an insurgency eight years ago.
The troops, from an anti-poaching unit, fell into a trap set by "terrorists", the army
said on social media. It was the second time that the armed forces have suffered a loss
on this scale since the military took over the country on August 18.
The attack took place between Konna and Douentza, near the town of Mopti.
