A Mauritanian man suspected of planning and carrying out a string of deadly attacks on sites popular with foreigners in Mali last year has been arrested in Bamako, security sources said Friday.
Arrested on Thursday, the man is believed to have taken part in an attack on a bar in Bamako in March 2015, the sources said.
He is also suspected of planning the deadly assaults on the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako in November and the Byblos hotel in central Mali in August.
