The French military says it has filmed Russian mercenaries burying bodies outside a military base.
According to the French military, the corpses are being used as part of a campaign of lies against departing French troops.
The images, taken by a drone after the French had left the Gossi base in Northern Mali, show what appear to be Caucasian soldiers covering bodies with sand.
A twitter account, which the French say was probably a fake one created by the kremlin-linked Wagner group, has already posted images of pixelated corpses buried in sand and held the French responsible for their deaths.
Russia has not commented on the French accusations.
