The Secretary-General is shocked and outraged by reports that at least 100 civilians have been killed in attacks allegedly carried out by extremist groups on several villages in the Bandiagara region of central Mali on 18 and 19 June. It is equally appalled by reports that dozens of civilians have also been killed in other attacks by extremist groups in the Gao region and by the heavy loss of life and livelihoods in other regions of the country, including Ménaka, where tens of thousands of people have been displaced in recent weeks.
