Four troops were killed and 12 were wounded on Thursday in an ambush in central Mali, the army said, blaming the attack on jihadists who launched an insurgency eight years ago.

The troops, from an anti-poaching unit, fell into a trap set by "terrorists", the army said on social media. It was the second time that the armed forces have suffered a loss on this scale since the military took over the country on August 18.
