13 Killed In Mali Hotel Attack, As 4 UN Workers Were Saved

At least 13 people are thought to have been killed, including five UN workers, in a hostage siege at a hotel in the central Malian town of Sevare.

A further four UN workers survived by hiding in cupboards for almost 24 hours as the attack unfolded.

The suspected Islamist gunmen had retreated to the hotel after attacking a nearby army base.
The siege was ended after government troops stormed the building early on Saturday.

No group has said it carried out the attack.

At least three of the gunmen are dead and seven have been arrested, while five Malian soldiers were said to have been killed in the attack.
