Terrorists Take Hostages, Kill 27 In Mali Shopping Mall Massacre

Today the world faced yet another terrorist attack. This time in Bamako, Mali. Terrorists stormed a Radison hotel. They took over one hundred hostages and killed at least 27 of them before Malian authorities defeated them. Ana Kasparian (The Point), John Iadarola (Think Tank), and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show Podcast), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"A terror attack at a luxury hotel in Mali’s capital has left at least 27 people dead and highlighted the world’s growing vulnerability to extremist violence.

Less than a week after the Paris gun and suicide bomb attacks in which 130 people were killed, a group of heavily armed and seemingly well-trained gunmen stormed the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako.

They drove unchallenged into an inner compound, detonated grenades, opened fire at security guards and then took hostage around 170 people, among them diplomats, a celebrated Guinean singer and air crew from France and Turkey, as well as Indian and Chinese nationals.

The siege was the latest in a string of recent high-profile terror attacks, frombombings in Beirut and the downing of a Russian airline over the Sinai desert to the events in Paris.

By late Friday night, Malian special forces assisted by counterparts from the US and France had fought their way through the hotel floor by floor, reportedly killing at least two of the gunmen. A security source in Mali said the incident was over by the early evening.”*
