130+ people from Fulani Muslim ethnic group killed in Mali after gunmen disguise as hunters

A group of gunmen who disguised themselves as traditional hunters have surrounded a Mali village and killed at least 134 Fulani herders.

It was the deadliest such attack of recent times in a region reeling from worsening ethnic and jihadist violence.

The Fulani ethnic group are semi-nomadic, primarily Muslim and live in various West African nations.

Moulaye Guindo, mayor of the nearby town of Bankass, said armed men, dressed as traditional Donzo hunters, encircled and attacked Ogossagou.

He said another nearby Fulani village, Welingara, had also been attacked, causing "a number" of deaths, but he did not yet know how many.

Security sources said the dead included pregnant women, children and elderly people, and members of the greater Peuhl community who were in contact with survivors said that the village chief and his grandchildren were among the victims.

Graphic video provided to The Associated Press hours after the attack shows bodies sprawled out on the earth next to huts still burning.

The armed attacks took place as a United Nations Security Council mission visited Mali seeking solutions to violence that killed hundreds of civilians last year and is spreading across West Africa's Sahel region.

Francois Delattre, the president of the council who spoke in Mali's capital on Saturday, condemned the massacre as an "unspeakable attack".

One Ogossagou resident, who asked not to be identified, said the attack appeared to be in retaliation, after an Al Qaeda affiliate claimed responsibility for a raid last week that killed 23 soldiers.

That group said that raid was payback for violence by Mali's army and militiamen against the Fulani.

Jihadist groups linked to Al Qaeda and Islamic State have exploited ethnic rivalries in Mali and neighbouring Burkina Faso and Niger in recent years to boost recruitment and render vast swathes of territory virtually ungovernable.

Fulanis don’t look like that anymore. Most of them look pretty similar to bantus, they mixed with them.
Their culture now:

Those have mixed with people like the Dogon. The original Fulanis are a mixture of Senegambian and Berber and have lots of Hamitic/Afro-Asiatic ancestry.

Elite/true Fulanis look like those I posted above.
Yup but the ones in Mali like were killed today are heavily mixed, they don’t look like the original ones. They aren’t hamites (anymore)
 
Still. H/utus regardless of the religion they follow, their common goal is to replace us Afro-Asiatic natives from the continent so beware innit.
Very true
but there is also a religious aspect involved in this instance
“The Dogon accuse Fulanis of ties to jihadist groups. The Fulanis claim that Mali's military has armed the hunters to attack them.”
 
This is the tragedy that breitbart twisted and made it look like it was christian that was massacred.
That was a different instance in Nigeria
There is a whole conflict with Fulani herders and nearby tribes people in Nigeria
Over land I assume, but the media portrays it as a religious conflict showing muslims being violent

Its the same conflict between the Fulanis and the Adara who are mainly christian.

Cheating death in berbera
This is a test they’re testing the mettle of the Fulani
I’m surprised the Bantu are using Somali tactics

If the Fulani don’t respond and steal some camels they’re going to be seen as fragile and weak
