Armed men reportedly killed two Moroccan truck drivers and injured another in Didieni commune, 300 km from Mali’s capital Bamako.
The truck drivers were carrying goods towards Bamako when they were attacked on Saturday afternoon by a group of armed men who were hiding behind trees along the side of the road, Moroccan official news agency MAP said on Sunday.
The armed men were hooded, wearing bulletproof vests and had wireless communication devices, it said.
It added that they left the scene without stealing anything from the victims.
The injured driver was transferred to a local hospital to receive the necessary health care, it said.
Morocco has strong trade relations with West African countries.
Dozens of Moroccan trucks cross the Sahel route through Mauritania and Mali daily to transport goods between different countries in the region.
