"The French military lies fabricates facts," told Fomba to Sputnik. He added that "if there are mass graves, then they [the French military] are responsible for them." The official said that the country's authorities had opened an investigation into possible nuclear waste.
Last month Malian forces allegedly found mass graves in the vicinities of the former French military base in Gossi. Paris said that the bodies were planted there by Russian mercenaries.
Mali and Russia have previously accused France of hiding "the obvious inhuman crimes of the French military with the help of gross and unsubstantiated informational falsification," especially in the face of the recent allegations of the discovery of mass graves near the former French base in the Malian territory.
