Gunmen on Monday attacked a hotel in Mali's capital, Bamako, that had been converted into the headquarters of a European Union military training operation, but there are no casualties among the mission's personnel.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which began at around 6:30 p.m. local time. Mali and neighbouring West African countries have increasingly been the target of Islamist militants, some of them affiliated with al Qaeda.
