Jihadists on Wednesday regained control of a village in central Mali, locals said, returning to the site of a recent attack that killed 20 members of the security forces.

The Malian army, which had retaken control of Soloko, had “fallen back” to the neighbouring area of Diabaly and jihadists had returned to the village, a local teacher told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The Sunday attack on the Soloko camp claimed by the Jamaat Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM) — an umbrella group of Al-Qaeda affiliates — killed 20 Malian security forces and wounded five, according to authorities.

“The jihadists… have raised their flag in the gendarmes’ camp,” said Hamed Drame, president of the Soloko youth association.
