A jihadist group run by a leading Algerian militant claimed responsibility Saturday for the deaths of five people in an attack on a nightclub popular with foreigners in the Malian capital Bamako.
A spokesman for the Al-Murabitoun group, headed by Mokhtar Belmokhtar, made the claim in an audio recording carried by the Mauritanian news agency Al-Akbar, which frequently publishes what it says are statements from jihadist groups.
