Attack on Fulani village kills at least 20 people in central Mali
Affected Countries: mali;
At least 20 people were found dead after an attack on a Fulani village in central Mali, where communal violence has surged in recent months, the government said on Friday.
The attack on Wednesday follows a string of deadly clashes between herders and ethnic Dogon farmers who have long fought over land and resources.
But the Fulani have increasingly become targets because of their perceived association with armed Islamist groups in the Sahel.
