Dozens of villagers are killed months after a similar attack.
Ethnic tension is threatening to further destabilise Mali.
Violence is worsening in the long-running dispute between the Dogon and Fulani peoples - and armed groups linked to Al Qaeda are exploiting the unrest.
A village home to Dogon farmers was attacked by men armed with machetes and guns.
At least 95 people were killed.
Sunday's attack is similar to the ransacking of a Fulani village in March, where nearly 160 died.
What's behind these killings?
And why can’t Mali's government protect its people?
