Al Qaeda claims responsibility for attack on U.N. base in Mali
Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has claimed responsibility for Friday's deadly attack on a U.N. police base in the northern Malian city of Timbuktu, a statement monitored by the SITE Intelligence group showed on Saturday. Malian troops backed by U.N. helicopters recaptured the base in a former hotel hours after it was taken and a Malian commander and four attackers were killed. Militants have expanded their attacks in the region, killing 20 people in a raid on a hotel in Mali's capital in November and 30 more in an attack in the capital of Burkina Faso last month.
