Gunmen Massacre Thirty Seven People

By Theodore Shoebat

Thirty seven people, all belonging to the Fulani tribe, were slaughtered by people dressed as dozo hunters. Would not doubt that this was done by paramilitaries or agents to deepen ethnic tensions. As we read in DW:

In total, 37 civilians belonging to the Fulani ethnic group were killed in an attack on a village in central Mali on Tuesday, the government said.

The attackers, “armed men dressed like traditional dozo hunters” according to a government statement, raided the village of Koulogon, located in the central Mopti region. Some of the victims were children.

Moulage Guindo, the mayor of the nearby town of Bankass, said the attack occurred around the time of the first call to prayer of the new year. Guindo said the assailants targeted the Fulani part of Koulogon and that the other part of the village is mostly inhabited by Dogon, an ethnic group to which the Donzos are linked.
