The hostage incident in a hotel in Mali yesterday will have little impact on an Irish Government decision to send more peacekeeping troops to the land-locked and strife-riven country in western Africa.
At present, the Defence Forces have 10 personnel working with an EU training mission (EUTM) in Mali.
Three are based in Bamako, where yesterday's attack took place, and fill administrative and logistics posts with the mission.
