Egypt condemned on Monday a terrorist attack on a military base in Mali that killed 12 soldiers, according to a statement bythe Egyptian foreign ministry.

The attack on Sunday targeted the base near the border with Burkina Faso.

No group has claimed its responsibility for the attack so far but suspicion fell on a group from Burkina Faso known as Ansaroul Islam, which is linked to extremist groups in northern Mali.

The Egyptian foreign ministry's spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid presented Egypt's condolences to the families of the victims, adding that Egypt's government and people stood with the government and people of Mali against terrorism.
