170 hostages seized in Mali hotel attack

170 hostages have been seized by “jihadists” who shouted “god is great” is Arabic as they stormed a hotel in the centre of Bamako, the capital of Mali. Malian soldiers have surrounded the building and, in light of the events in Paris, they will undoubtedly be keen to conduct a rather successful rescue mission than that which the French police conducted at the Bataclan.

**UPDATE** Military forces are storming the hotel. Similarly to Paris, this won’t be a waiting out the terrorists situation. The rescue operation is underway.
