BAMAKO, Mali – A Malian military spokesman says two soldiers are dead and three others wounded after a military vehicle struck a roadside bomb in southern Mali.

Col. Souleymane Maiga said the attack took place Sunday in Mali's Segou region, far from the violence in the country's north that has been blamed on remnants of the jihadist groups that used to control that area.
