Al Qaeda claims credit for Ivory Coast attack killing at least 16
Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for an attack on an Ivory Coast resort in West Africa that reportedly killed 16 and six gunmen.
Here are more details from the Bloomberg article:
“Al-Qaeda in the Maghreb and al-Mourabitoune claimed responsibility, Mauritanian newspaper al-Akhbar said, citing sources close to the Islamist fighters. The groups use the paper to publish claims of responsibility. At least 14 civilians and two soldiers were killed, Agence-France Presse reported, citing President Alassane Ouattara. At least six militants were killed, the government said in an e-mailed statement.”
Sad news. Remember when president “JV Team” informed us repeatedly that al Qaeda was on the run? All part of the Obama legacy.
