53 Malian Soldiers Killed in Attack at Military Camp near Border with Niger

3 Suicide Bombers Detonated Explosives inside Military Post


Fifty-three Malian soldiers and a civilian were confirmed dead following an attack on a military camp in Indelimane, located in the northeast part of the county.

The incident was confirmed by the country’s communication minister Yaya Sangare who said the attack happened near the border with Niger.

The attack involved at least three suicide bombers who detonated the explosive inside the camp.

In a tweet, Sangare said the situation had been brought “under control”. However, there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The government has condemned the attack but expressed fears that the death toll could rise.

Two months ago, about forty soldiers were killed in two separate attacks near the border with Burkina Faso.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
