    More than 130 people from Muslim ethnic group killed in Mali

    ---

    When Muslims kill non-Muslims or, as in NZ recently non-Muslims kill Muslims it makes the headlines but ...

    A group of gunmen who disguised themselves as traditional hunters have surrounded a Mali village and killed at least 134 Fulani herders.

    Key points:

    • Pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those slain
    • The attack may have been in retaliation after an Al Qaeda-linked group killed 23 soldiers
    • Jihadist groups linked to Al Qaeda and Islamic State have exploited ethnic rivalries in Mali



    It was the deadliest such attack of recent times in a region reeling from worsening ethnic and jihadist violence.
    The Fulani ethnic group are semi-nomadic, primarily Muslim and live in various West African nations.

    Moulaye Guindo, mayor of the nearby town of Bankass, said armed men, dressed as traditional Donzo hunters, encircled and attacked Ogossagou.

    "We are provisionally at 134 bodies recovered by the gendarmes [military police]," Mr Guindo said.
    He said another nearby Fulani village, Welingara, had also been attacked, causing "a number" of deaths, but he did not yet know how many.

    Security sources said the dead included pregnant women, children and elderly people.

    It seems to have been covered quite well, considering it's the weekend.

    You, on the other hand, never posted a link.

    If it had happened in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, or continental Europe, it would be a bigger story in the international media, IMHO.

    Probably, but it's still Sunday. Lots of newsrooms near empty.
