The Pentagon said six Americans were rescued from a Radisson hotel in Mali by U.S. special forces on Friday. “U.S. forces have helped move civilians to secure locations, as Malian forces work to clear the hotel of hostile gunmen,” Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Falvo said. French special forces and the Mali military are also reportedly responding to the attack by terrorists that took at least 138 people hostage. Eighty people reportedly escaped.
