Mali hotel attack probe delayed over investigators’ differences


BAMAKO: A probe into last month’s hostage taking at a hotel in Mali’s capital Bamako has been slowed by procedural differences between Malian investigators and their foreign counterparts, sources said Saturday. Malian investigators as well as experts from the United Nations, France, Canada and Belgium are carrying out the investigation into the November 20 attack on the Radisson Blu in Bamako that left 20 people dead. Foreign experts do not work “in the same manner” as their Malian colleagues, and resuming the probe will require “changing working procedures,” a Malian security source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
