Another terrorist attack has struck a world city, one week after the jihadist atrocities in Paris that killed 129 people.
The city of Bamako, Mali, was the scene for the latest terror attack. Gunmen drove vehicles with diplomatic plates onto the property of the Radisson Blu Hotel, a hotel that is known for its popularity with foreign tourists, and spoke English as they entered the hotel.
Guinean singer Sekouba ‘Bambino’ Diabate, who was freed by Malian security forces, told The Daily Mail what he had heard:
“I heard them say in English ‘Did you load it?’, ‘Let’s go,.’
I wasn’t able to see them because in these kinds of situations it’s hard. I woke up with the sounds of gunshots and for me, it was just small bandits who came in the hotel to claim something. After 20 or 30 minutes, I realized these are not just petty criminals.”
After going floor to floor through the hotel brandishing AK-47s, they took 170 hostages. According to reports, those who were able to recite portions of the Koran were allowed to leave.
A subsequent raid by Malian security forces freed approximately 80 more hostages.

Breaking reports indicate that there are Americans inside the hotel. It is unknown just how many Americans are being held.
