Bamako - A prosecutor in Mali says two men have been indicted on charges of complicity in terrorism for the attack on a luxury hotel in Mali's capital in November that killed 20 people.

Boubacar Sidiki Samake said on Wednesday that the men were arrested November 26 and indicted on December 16. Samake, who leads the investigation into the attacks on the Radisson Blu hotel, said the men had been identified on surveillance video.

He said that when arrested they were each carrying about $330 in cash, enough to leave Mali.

Two gunmen armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and explosives stormed the hotel early November 20 and shot at patrons. Malian troops, backed by French and American special forces, retook the building.

The gunmen were killed at the scene.
