DJENNE, Mali (AP) — A France-based human rights group is warning about dozens of "summary executions" and other abuses allegedly committed by Malian troops as they counter-attack jihadists holed up in the West African country's hinterlands.

The International Federation for Human Rights, or FIDH by its French acronym, is calling for the creation of an independent commission to look into the crimes and punish those responsible.
