Suspected Islamist militants kill three at Mali customs post

BAMAKO - Suspected Islamist militants killed two civilians and a customs officer and burned a car in an attack on a customs post in Mopti, central Mali, on Thursday, a defense ministry spokesman said.
Islamist militants based in the north of the country have expanded their range in recent months with a series of raids.
Militants killed 20 people in a high-profile raid on a hotel in Mali's capital in November and 30 more in an attack in the capital of Burkina Faso last month.
