West Africa | Mali’s military arrests three European nationals for terrorism

Mali’s military leadership has announced the arrest of three terrorists of European origin during an anti-jihadist operation in the central part of the country.

In a statement, the Malian General staff said the “military detachment from Diabaly carried out the arrest on April 10, 2022, of five suspects including three European nationals.”

The arrest followed a series of activities of terrorism in the country, spilling to neighbouring countries which the Assimi Goita regime has been grappling to deal with since the coup which saw the removal of Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

The statement however did not indicate whether the deployment which carried out the arrest included members of Russia’s Wagner group which the Malian government has contracted to help fight jihadists.

Meanwhile, the European Union cited the presence of the Wagner in Mali as one of the reasons for withdrawing troops from the country to neighbouring Sahel nations.
