Five Malian soldiers killed by landmine

Five Malian soldiers were killed when their vehicle hit a landmine in the centre of the country, Reuters reported.

The explosion occurred between the central Segou and Mopti regions.

"We have lost five men. Their vehicle set off a mine. They were all in the same vehicle," a Malian military official told AFP yesterday.

Another Malian military source confirmed the blast and blamed "terrorists" for the killings, without naming any group.
