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
