1. Attackers take 170 hostages at Mali hotel
Gunmen shouting “God is great” seized 170 hostagesFriday at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, Mali. “They have locked in about 140 guests and about 30 employees,” a spokesperson for the hotel chain’s owner, Carlson Rezidor group, said. Around 80 people have since been able to escape with the support of Malian special forces that penetrated the hotel. The U.S. Embassy confirmed that there was an “ongoing active-shooter operation” at the hotel. Islamist militants took control of the northern part of the West African country in 2012, but a French-led intervention drove them out in 2013.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
