The United States Embassy in Mali strongly condemns the attack against the President of the High Court of Justice of Mali, Hon. Abderhamane Niang. This vile and barbarous attack on a civilian convoy that took the lives of six people is a stark reminder of the resolve required to assure continued peace and stability in Mali.
The United States offers its sincere condolences to the bereaved families and we wish a speedy recovery to the wounded. The United States remains determined to support the Malian people in their efforts to implement the peace agreement and in the fight against terrorism in all forms.
