Two Vancouver executives were involved in Friday's harrowing attack on a luxury hotel in Mali's capital that left 19 dead. The employees of mining company B-2 Gold were trapped in their hotel rooms in Bamako for seven hours as militants stormed the building. Company chief executive Clive Johnson says he was in constant communication with them through text messages. (Johnson says the men remained remarkably calm until they were rescued by Malian special forces who went room-to-room kicking down doors to rescue people inside. The company is developing the Fekola mine in Mali, which could hold the largest gold deposits in West Africa.)
