Mali extends state of emergency by six months

Image result for Mali extends state of emergency by six monthsMali has extended a state of emergency in the country by six months, until October 31st, this is as it continues to battles a jihadist insurgency.

The measure has been renewed several times since jihadists stormed the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako in November 2015, killing 20 people.

That attack was claimed by al-Qaeda’s regional branch.

The decree, which was due to expire on Saturday, hands extra powers to security forces and restricts public gatherings.

The country’s troubled north has witnessed a spate of jihadist strikes despite the emergency.

Last month, armed men killed five soldiers and injured 10 others in an attack on an army post in the tense Timbuktu region.
