Four hostages have been freed after Malian forces, backed by French soldiers, ended the siege of a hotel in Mali.
Suspected Islamist militants reportedly killed at least six other people, including five government soldiers and a peacekeeping mission worker.
Gunmen attacked the Byblos Hotel used by UN staff in the town of Sevare, around six-hundred kilometres northeast of the capital Bamako early on Friday.
Three attackers, one strapped with explosives, were killed.
