Six Turkish Airlines staff members are among those in a luxury hotel attacked by gunmen in Mali's capital Bamako on Friday, a Turkish government official said.

"There are six Turkish Airlines personnel in the hotel," the official told Reuters.

The U.S. Embassy tweeted that it was "aware of an ongoing active shooter operation at the Radisson Hotel," and instructed its citizens to stay indoors.

An Islamist group claimed responsibility for the death of five people last March in an attack on a restaurant in Bamako popular with foreigners.
