Jihadist warfare in West Africa, unleashed after Libya's takeover, continued in a Thursday attack in Mali.

Seven government soldiers were killed in an ambush in central Mali in an area where at least 32 villagers had been killed the previous day by suspected jihadists, authorities said on Friday.

The attack on an army patrol took place on Thursday on the outskirts of Gouari village in the Mopti region, Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Diarran Koneman said.

“The unit was attacked at the entrance of Gouari village by armed individuals on three vehicles and on some 40 motorcycles,” the army said in a statement, adding that another two soldiers were injured and three missing.

Suspected Islamist militants had raided the villages of Gouari, Djindo and Fangadougou on Wednesday.
