Associated Press Updated: December 11, 2013 at 7:33 pm

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — The United States says it is "concerned" by reports the Malian government threatened to shut down a Malian website, after it published an AP article.

The article described an AP reporter's quest to find the bodies of civilians allegedly killed by Mali's military.

Will Stevens, a State Department spokesman, said the U.S. "looks forward to receiving more information from the government of Mali authorities on this issue."

The editor of Maliactu.net said he was forced to retract the AP article this week after getting threatening phone calls from the Malian military and its government.
