Mali:al Qaeda affiliate says sorry for blowing up bus and murdering 14 people.

(Douentza) On the 3rd of September a passenger bus carrying 60 people hit a land mine killing 14 and injuring 24 others just outside the town of Douentza

Today Jama’a Nusrat ul-Islam wa al-Muslimin (JNIM) – an affiliate for al Qaeda put their hand up and admitted that it planted the landmine that killed 14 civilians claiming that it was intended to target French troops. And it had not intended to attack the bus and offered its condolences and sympathy to the relatives of those killed.

Oh I suppose that makes it alright then.
