The local government has denied the allegations, saying French planes hit a house where the wedding was taking place and that the dead were unarmed villagers.
  • It is believed that the UN mission in Mali has also confirmed the air strike on the village, but did not release any details.

However, the French government has kept quiet about the French move.
