Amnesty International has condemned Bamako over the slow pace of investigations into reported cases of killings and rights abuses.
Amnesty International in a 70-page report published on Wednesday, specifically catalogued crimes committed in recent years against Malian civilians, in the Center, where it said violence against civilians has continued to increase since 2018.
Nearly 200 people were killed in Ogossagou, between March 2019 and February 2020, while 35 others were murdered in Sobane Da, in June 2019.
The rights group said little progress has been made in investigating these crimes committed against civilians, whether by jihadist groups, community armed groups or the Malian army.
While families of the victims of these attacks and several others continue to demand justice, Amnesty International said one critical concern for civilians in Mali is the lack of protection.
