New Delhi/UNI: India has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a convoy of the Malian Armed Forces on Aug 19 in the Mopti region in Mali that resulted in the killing of 15 soldiers.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the soldiers as well as the people and the Government of Mali and wish for the speedy recovery of all the other injured soldiers,” a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs said.

A car bomb hit a convoy of soldiers in the Mopti region on Aug 19, which was followed by a hail of bullets.

Islamic extremists are believed to be behind the attack.

The Malian Army said a vehicle packed with explosives exploded as troops went from the town of Douentza to Boni in the Mopti region. Gunmen then opened fire, killing at least 15 soldiers.
