BAMAKO: Four suicide bombers blew themselves up at an army barracks in northern Mali on Saturday, killing two civilians in an upsurge in violence against the military since the failure of peace talks with rebel groups. The bombers let off explosives in a car in front of an army camp in the desert city of Timbuktu, also wounding six soldiers, the government said, just 24 hours after troops in the rebel bastion of Kidal were hurt in a grenade attack. “The government strongly condemns the suicide bombing . . . by four terrorists at the military camp in the city of Timbuktu,” it said in a statement. “This cowardly attack resulted in the death of six people, including two civilians and four terrorists who were killed on the spot. The explosion resulted in extensive damage.”
