Malian Armed Forces (FAMa) soldiers killed at least six militants from the Dan Na Ambassagou group during a security operation in Koro cercle (Mopti region), on Wednesday afternoon (local time), May 13. The operation took place during a reconnaissance patrol between the Zon and Pepa area in the Koro cercle. No FAMa casualties were reported following the operation.

Further security operations are expected in the region over the near term.


Due to the presence of various armed groups, Mali's northern and central regions remain unstable despite the presence of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), one of the largest UN peacekeeping missions in the world.


The security environment in Mali remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.

Due to the underlying terrorist and kidnapping threats prevalent in the country, all those present in Mali are advised to remain discreet regarding personal details, particularly information concerning nationality, employment, family, etc. Individuals are also advised to avoid public events and places frequented by Westerners, to remain vigilant at all times (especially in local markets, now used by terrorists as recruitment grounds), and to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities.
