Malian security forces have arrested a suspected jihadist leader in the south of the country, security sources said Thursday.
"Souleymane Keita, the top jihadist leader in the south of the country, was arrested a few days ago on the Mauritanian border, and transferred to Bamako on Wednesday," a security source said.
Another security source said the arrest, near the town of Sokolo, was made possible in part by the capture of one of his allies a few months ago in the centre of the country.
