A series of attacks in Mali have killed dozens of civilians and soldiers, with two of the attacks aimed at the army while the other was targeted at civilians.
A statement by the Malian army suggested that a base in Sokoura and near the border with Burkina Faso was the first to be attacked, with reports placing the number of soldiers who died in the attack at nine.
The attackers ambushed other soldiers near the base who were responding to an attack killing three of them.
A vehicle transporting civilians to Bankass was attacked leaving 12 civilians dead, according to the local mayor.
This is the first time the country has experienced deadly attacks since the 18 August coup.
Former President Ibrahim Keïta had been accused of failing to secure the country from attacks. Protesters called for his resignation for months until a military junta took over.
A civilian transitional president has since been appointed and is deputized by the leader of the junta.
