Barack Obama: Mali attacks ‘stiffens our resolve’

US President Barack Obama said on Saturday (21 November) the Mali hotel attacks only stiffened the resolve of the United States and its allies, which would be relentless in fighting those targeting its citizens and would allow militants no safe haven. At least one American citizen has been identified among the 19 dead. In a speech at a regional summit in Malaysia, Obama described Fridays (20 November) raid and hostage incident in Mali as another awful reminder of the scourge of terrorism. Nov 21, 2015
