At least six people were killed by an explosion in Mali on Friday.
A military officer told journalists on Saturday that the blast occurred near Boura, Mali’s southern region of Sikasso.
Among the victims were a pregnant woman and a two-year-old child.
The attack was the first on civilians since mutinous soldiers toppled Malian president, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, last month.
