Mali: Tuaregs killed in 'jihadist revenge' attacks Image copyright AFP/Getty Images Image caption Tuaregs are historically nomadic Berber people living in Mali and other neighbouring countries More than 30 members of the Tuareg community have been killed in two separate attacks by suspected jihadists in north-eastern Mali, officials say.

They are believed to have been carried out in revenge after Tuareg attacks on jihadist bases in recent weeks.

Tuaregs - historically nomadic Berber people - seized parts of the region, including the historic city of Timbuktu, in 2012.
