The bodies of 18 people were recovered as special forces stormed a hotel in Mali’s capital seized by gunmen on Friday, a foreign security source told AFP.

“Eighteen bodies were found,” the source told AFP on condition of anonymity, adding that French special forces from neighbouring Burkina Faso were in the hotel and “participating in operations alongside Malians”.
