A pair of attacks on ethnic Dogon villages in central Mali has left at least 38 people dead and many wounded in the latest intercommunal violence to destabilize the troubled area near Burkina Faso, authorities said Wednesday.

His spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said in a press briefing that unidentified armed individuals attacked the villages of Yoro and Gangafani, in the Mopti region in central Mali late on Monday.

The victims of Monday's raids were mostly ethnic Dogons, said Issiaka Ganame, the mayor of Yoro, where 24 people were killed. "Then they descended on Gangafani 2, about 15 km away".

The tit-for-tat violence in recent months has largely pitted Dogon hunters against Fulani herders. The attack comes just a week after another deadly raid on a Dogon village.

They will talk on the ways to enhance support by the United Nations and the European Union to accelerate the implementation of the peace agreement and the restoration of State authority in northern and central Mali, as well as to strengthen the partnership between the two organizations in the country, said Dujarric.

President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita's government vowed to disarm the militias but struggles to do so. The groups are looked to for security by local communities who do not trust the government to protect them.

"President Keita said he was going to disarm all the militias". "Accountability is instrumental in the pursuit of peace and stability and the Malian authorities, with the support of the global community, must step up to address the growing insecurity in central Mali".
