Malian forces arrests leader of islamist group ANSAR DINE in central mali

Malian forces have arrested a regional leader of Islamist group ANSAR DINE in central Mali, after it claimed responsibility for the attack in the region that killed 17 soldiers and wounded 35 others.

Army spokesman, MODIBO TRAORE, said in Bamako that Ansar Dine laid claim to the attack last week by gunmen who fired on troop positions and burned buildings in an army base in the central town of Nampala last week.

He said state security services arrested the commander, MAHMOUD BARRY, nicknamed “ABOU YEHIYA” as he was travelling on a road between Nampala and Dogofri.

TRAORE said that BARRY had also planned an attack on the town of Nara that killed 12 people.
