A video captured the moment a person attacked the interim president of Mali, Asmi Gueta, with a knife during the Eid al-Adha prayer.

The main video appears in the front of the worshipers, surrounded by a number of guards who were standing, and behind them were worshipers sitting on the ground.

A young man rushed from among the worshipers and succeeded in reaching the president and seemed to want to stab him in the neck, but the guards quickly pounced on him and he fell to the ground.

The authorities said that one person was injured in this attempt.

The attempted attack on the interim president comes at a time when Mali has been witnessing attacks from terrorists in the centre of the country in recent days.
