At least 12 civilians were killed in northern Mali in an attack on a market that also involved the shooting of a Malian soldier, military sources said on Sunday.

The attack took place Saturday in the town of Boulekessi near the border with Burkina Faso.



A military source from the joint force of soldiers from five Sahel countries told AFP that ‘‘Malian troops under the G5 Sahel command are at the centre of this incident” .

The source said, ‘‘one of the soldiers had been attacked by an armed man at the market in Boulekessi.

A Malian military source added that it was difficult to contact the region by phone and that an investigation was under way “to find out exactly how many civilians were killed and who shot the soldier.”

A former Malian minister, who comes from the region,told AFP that witnesses had claimed the incident was due to military “blunders” and that “more than 15 civilians were killed”.

Two witnesses said an armed man shot a Malian soldier who was now fighting for his life, the ex-minister said, adding that he was waiting for confirmation of the details of the incident.

Mali’s defence minister Tienan Coulibaly could not been reached for comment. The Malian army is often accused of making arbitrary arrests and carrying out extra-judicial executions in its fight against jihadists in the north of the country.

France intervened militarily in Mali in 2013 to help government forces drive Al-Qaeda-linked jihadists out of the north.

But large tracts of the country remain lawless despite a peace accord signed with ethnic Tuareg leaders in mid-2015 aimed at isolating the jihadists. The violence has also spilled over into both Burkina Faso and Niger.
