Five people have been killed in a terror attack on a restaurant in Mali.
An unknown number of others were injured in the incident in the capital, Bamako.
French President Francois Hollande said in a statement that security has been tightened around French facilities, while the embassy set up a crisis number to help expatriates. One of the victims is believed to be French.
Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said one Belgian was among the victims of the “cowardly act of terror”.
Mr Hollande said he “condemns with the greatest force the cowardly attack” against La Terrasse restaurant, located in a district of expatriates.
He added that he will meet Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to show his support. The Malian leader travelled to Paris to show his support in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January.
