Two EU staff killed in Mali attack
Two people working for the European Union were among those killed during an attack by gunmen on a popular tourist resort in Mali, the EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini says.
"Unfortunately, I can confirm that there were two victims among our EU colleagues, a Malian woman and a Portuguese man," Ms Mogherini told a press conference in Luxembourg.
The Portuguese army had earlier confirmed that one of its soldiers was killed during the attack.
The slain soldier was part of the European Union Training Mission in Mali EUTM Mali.
Mali security forces say they killed four militants who were involved in the attack and arrested five others.
