Top Islamic Millitant killed in Mali

According to AFP News Agency, a top Islamist militant commander in Mali has been killed in the country's troubled central region.

According to Malian military source, Bekaye Sangare, who was a senior figure in the Macina Brigades, a group that joined a powerful Islamist alliance that was formed in March, was killed by the National Guard in the southern-central town of Mougna.

However, Sangare was reportedly behind a series of attacks in the region targeting police and customs checkpoints along the country's common border with Burkina Faso last week.

AFP also added that, a joint force of Malian and French troops have killed about a dozen militants in the north, while an Islamist attack left three soldiers dead and five others are still missing.
