A suicide bomber has blown himself up in the northern Mali town of Gao – the country’s first such case, military sources say.

The attacker approached a group of soldiers on a motorbike before detonating an explosive belt, injuring one of them, a Malian officer told AFP.

BBC reports that Gao is the most populous city in northern Mali, which was captured by Islamist militants last year.

French-led forces ousted the militants after intervening in January.
