Two arrested by Malian special force

Malian special force has arrested two suspects as they think the connection with the siege at a hotel in the capital Bamako that left 20 people dead, officials say.

The suspects’ identity and alleged role in Friday’s attack at the Radisson Blu hotel was not immediately known.

Armed men held 170 guests and staff hostage during the nine-hour siege, killing 20 and wounding 14 before police stormed the building.

A local affiliate of al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack.
