Pope Francis strongly condemns Mali attack as his African visit draws near

On Friday 20th November, 2015 Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako of Mali was attacked by a group of Islamic gunmen. The Gunmen came into the Hotel building, said nothing to anyone and began to fire at everyone in the hotel’s breakfast hall, shouting the words “Allahu akbar” repeatedly as they shot at people, according to Tamba Couye, an eyewitness and an employee of the hotel. At least 22 people were killed in the attack.

The whole Malians are observing three days mourning for those that died in the attack. The Mailian nation is saddened by the attack.

Pope Francis sent a telegram to the archbishop of Bamoko, Mgr Jean Zerbo, through the Vatican Secretary. In the telegram the Pope expressed his appalled discontent for the “senseless violence in Mali” on Friday.

Despite all these uprise and aimless attacks in Africa, Pope Francis is still to visit Africa as schdulled. His Bodguard Domenico Gianni has travelled to Africa ahead of the Pontiff to ensure that the Papal visit will be well secured. As the Pope will be visiting places like the mosque and holding evening vigils.
