November 20, 2015: Mali - Jihadist attack on a hotel in Bamako. 

After an attack on a bar restaurant in Bamako on November 7 which killed 5 people, an Islamic terrorist group affiliated to Al-Qaeda attacked the Radisson hotel in Bamako on Friday. 27 hostages and three terrorists have been killed.

August 7, 2015: Mali - terrorist attack. 

Just a few weeks after the peace agreement with the rebels (Tuareg) in northern Mali, Islamist militants attacked a hotel at Sevare in central Mali. The siege resulted in the death of several people, including hostages, Malian soldiers and terrorists.

June 20, 2015: Mali - peace agreement. 

After lengthy negotiations in Algiers and a failed attempt in mid-May 2015, the alliance of rebel groups (Tuareg) in northern Mali signed a peace agreement with the Malian government and its allies. The deal opens the way to a lasting peace in the region that suffered from a series of Tuareg rebellions and jihadist attacks, which prompted a military intervention from France in 2013. The deal grants the Tuareg a greater autonomy in the northern areas of Mali. It should help the country to better withstand the Jihadists.
