Malian security forces have killed five militants involved in an attack at the weekend on a luxury resort popular with Western expatriates outside Mali's capital Bamako, the security minister said on Monday.

"This was without doubt a terrorist attack," Security Minister Salif Traore told Radio France International. "The anti-terrorist forces arrived on the scene immediately afterwards. Five terrorists were killed ... The operations continued throughout the night."

Traore added that the militants had some accomplices who had not been killed or detained. On Sunday night, authorities reported that two of the assailants had been killed.
