French and U.N. investigators joined a Mali police probe into a jihadist siege at a luxury hotel that left at least 19 dead as flags were lowered Monday for three days of mourning.The police found a suitcase with grenades in the hotel lobby and were following up "several leads" linked to "objects" left by the gunmen, a Malian police source told AFP.The attack has been claimed by two separate jihadist groups and a manhunt launched for three suspects.The assault, which ended when Malian and international troops stormed the building, left 19 people dead, including 14 foreigners, as well as two attackers, according to a "definitive" report by the government.The victims included six Russians, three Chinese, two Belgians, an American, an Israeli, a Senegalese and a member of the Malian special forces. The U.N. peacekeeping force in Mali, MINUSMA, however spoke of 22 fatalities, including two attackers.The group said Sunday there were only two attackers and suggested they were Malian.
