Mali hotel attack: hostages freed after special forces raid

Malian officials say suspected Islamist gunmen have “no more hostages” at a hotel in the capital Bamako.

The Radisson Blu Hotel was stormed by special forces after the gunmen entered the hotel, shooting and shouting “God is great!” in Arabic, and seized 170 people.

The US-owned hotel is popular with foreign businesses and airline crews.

At least three people have been killed and two soldiers wounded, officials say.
