2 dead after gunmen storm luxury resort in Mali

At least two tourists were killed Sunday after three gunmen attacked the Le Campement resort near the capital of Mali, CNN reports.

Two of the three gunmen were also killed, and a third is missing. Mali's Ministry of Security and Civil Protection said the attack was carried out by "armed individuals, certainly terrorists," who exchanged gunfire with the country's anti-terror forces. Police rescued 32 people, and three U.N. staffers injured in the attack have been taken to a local hospital. The Le Campement is popular with tourists and expats who host meetings and retreats there.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Embassy in Bamako issued a travel warning, urging Americans to avoid locations that do not have a lot of security, including hotels, restaurants, and churches. Catherine Garcia
