 Bamako - Authorities in Mali say one woman is still missing three days after Islamic extremists attacked a resort area near the capital.

Police said on Wednesday that the woman is a dual French-Gabonese national. Five people, including a man of French-Gabonese citizenship, already have been confirmed dead.

Authorities continue their investigation into the men blamed for Sunday's attack on the Campement Kangaba, a spot popular with foreigners.

While al-Qaeda has said three men carried out the attack, Malian authorities believe two other bodies found were those of jihadists who may have been recruited to help.

Anti-terror prosecutor Boubacar Samake says three other people have been arrested for their alleged roles in the attack. It was the first major assault in Bamako since late 2015.
