First Suicide Bombing in Mali

A suicide bomber has blown himself up in the northern Mali town of Gao - the country's first such case, sources say.

The attacker approached a group of soldiers on a motorbike before detonating an explosive belt, injuring one of them, a Malian officer told AFP.

Gao is the most populous city in northern Mali, where French-led troops have ousted Islamist militants from the main towns.
