Albion's Mali international midfielder Yves Bissouma is mourning the death of more than 130 victims of an atrocity in his country.

They were killed by hunters in an attack on a village in central Mali.

Bissouma posted a tweet with the Mali flag wrapped in a black bow.

The tweet, translated, said: "A big thought to all the Malian people, to the victims and to the families. To our brothers, to our sisters, that they rest in peace."

Bissouma, 22, recently became a dad and has not been on international duty.

Mali beat South Sudan 3-0 yesterday. They have qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt in June and July as group leaders ahead of Burundi.

Burundi, including controversial Stoke striker Saido Berahino, qualified for the first time in their history with a 1-1 home draw against Gabon who had in their ranks Arsenal's prolific Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
