The Telegraph is reporting that the terrorists who attacked a Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, Mali, were actively searching for the Air France crew who were staying there. Security guards at the hotel say the gunmen demanded to know which floor the crew was staying on.  After deliberately providing the wrong floor, a guard was shot.

 “When they got up there, the terrorists asked him: ‘where are the staff of Air France?’ He told them that they were on the seventh floor instead, and when they realised later that he had given them wrong information, they came back down and killed him.”

Air France has since suspended twice daily flights from Paris. Check out the full article and a few pictures from inside the Radisson Blu here.
