A raid on a village in central Mali on Monday left at least 95 people dead in the country’s latest bout of violence linked to Islamic extremists. Gunmen began shooting, pillaging, and burning the Dogon village of Sobame Da in the early morning hours, local news outlets reported. Ali Dolo, the mayor of the district, told Reuters the death toll could still rise because only 50 of the village’s 300 residents responded to a roll call.
