At least 95 people have been killed in an armed attack on a central Malian tribe, in a region of ethnic and tribal violence, according to defense ministry officials of Mali.

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.

“The Secretary-General appeals to all Malian stakeholders to show restraint and to refrain from retaliatory acts. He urges the Government and all actors to engage in inter-communal dialogue to resolve tensions and differences,” Dujarric added.
