Horrific tales have been revealed of Malian forces and suspected Russian mercenaries executing nearly 300 people, in central Mali.

Residents told Human Rights Watch that the killings occurred during a four-day operation against Islamist militants in late March.

The human rights organization said that the detained men were ordered to walk in groups of up to 10 people, before being executed without warning.

It quoted a man who witnessed some of the executions as saying: “I was living in terror. Every minute I thought it was my turn to take me away and execute me. Even after I was asked to leave, I was afraid that it would be a trap.”
