'Scores killed' after attack in central Mali village

Armed men have killed more than 100 people in central Mali, according to local officials, in what is one of the deadliest attacks in a country plagued by worsening ethnic violence and the rise of armed groups.

Moulaye Guindo, the mayor of the town of Bankass, said men dressed as traditional Donzo hunters encircled and attacked the nearby Fulani village of Ogossagou-Peul at around 4am (04:00 GMT) on Saturday.

"It's a very heavy death toll," he told Reuters news agency. "The village of Ogossagou is completely devastated," the mayor said, adding that bodies were still being discovered.
