BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — The United Nations says the toll from a massacre in central Mali is now at least 134 dead with dozens wounded.

François Delattre, the president of the U.N. Security Council who spoke in Mali's capital on Saturday, condemned the massacre as an "unspeakable attack."

Witnesses say that member of an ethnic Dogon militia already blamed for scores of attacks in the past year descended upon the village of Ogossogou before dawn Saturday.

Graphic video provided to The Associated Press hours after the attack shows bodies sprawled out on the earth next to huts still burning.

Members of the greater Peuhl community who were in contact with survivors said that the victims included the village chief and his grandchildren.
