French media, quoting the mayor of the town of Sanga, the attack occurred on the village of Sobane, from the tribe of Dogon, in the central region of Mopti, and set fire to the villagers while trying to escape, the official revealed that 95 bodies were found burned.

For years, Mali has been plagued by ethnic and tribal violence, as well as attacks by militant groups.

A confrontation between the Dogon and Fulani tribes a few months ago killed 37 people.

The government of Mali has announced a plan to disarm, reintegrate militias into the armed forces, and strengthen the security apparatus in the center of the country.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres “strongly condemns this attack and calls on the Malian authorities to investigate this tragedy and to bring the perpetrators to justice,” spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.
