About 100 Malians killed in attack on Dogon village

BAMAKO, At least 95 people were killed in an overnight attack on an ethnic Dogon village in central Mali, local officials said on Monday.

Fighting between Dogon hunters and Fulani herders has killed hundreds since January, including a March attack in which gunmen killed more than 150 Dogon.

Sunday's attack took place in the Sangha district, where Fulanis from the neighbouring Bankass district descended on a Dogon village after dark, Bankass mayor Moulaye Guindo told Reuters on Monday.
