The Washington Post is reporting that the only American killed in the Mali terror attack was RPCV Anita Datar.

Here is the link to read the Post report:

From the report:

“When she was in her early 20s, Anita Datar spent two years in Africa, serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal. She was on the continent again, this time in Mali, on Friday, when gunmen seized a luxury hotel and killed at least 20 people. Datar, a 41-year-old international development worker from Takoma Park, Md., is the only American known to have died in the attack.”

Thanks to the National Peace Corps Association for posting this on their Facebook page, where I first read about it.
