Malian military officials are claiming that Oumar Ould Hamaha, who has served as spokesman for the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, has been killed during a series of French airstrikes in northern Mali. From Reuters:

Two Malian military sources said Hamaha – a former member of al Qaeda’s north African wing (AQIM) who later became a leader of Mali’s Movement for Unity and Jihad in the Islamic Maghreb (MUJAO) – had been killed by French air strikes. One of the sources said that Algerian militant Abou Walid Sahraoui, another former AQIM fighter who played a prominent role in MUJAO, had also been killed by strikes in the Tigharghar mountains in remote northeastern Mali.

Neither France’s defense ministry nor foreign ministry would confirm the death of Hamaha or Sahraoui.
