Gunmen storm luxury hotel in Mali in hostage standoff

NAIROBI, Kenya — Gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in Mali’s capital on Friday with 170 guests and staff, killing at least three people and taking hostages in a city that serves as a logistics hub for French and American forces helping fight Islamist insurgents.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, and the identities or affiliation of the assailants was not clear. But Mali has faced repeated attacks from militants affiliated with al-Qaeda and other factions.
