The capital, Bamako, frequently suffers from terrorism attacks, as well as the central and northern parts of the country. Most incidents occur at restaurants and hotels. An example is an unfortunate incident in 2015 in the capital that involved a number of people taken hostage and killed in a Radisson hotel.
Since the fighting between the Russian-backed army separatists and the Ukrainian army escalated, the South Eastern and Eastern parts of the country have become mostly insecure, with even civilians getting involved. This specifically applies to regions such as Crimea, Donetsk oblast and Luhansk oblast.
