The rear end looks more like the one of a BTR 60 but the front part does not have the boat like shape of BTR 60 or 80.

BTR-60 I would say, but we'd need a better look. This photo is tiny.

Saw the same photo in a news article about combat in Mali, but it could have been a stock photo from just about anywhere given the way the press works.

I have found a better picture.

The photo of the BTR belongs to a collection of war pictures (not related to the BTA) titled: "Some photos taken in Konna, in northern Mali, after it was liberated by the French."

Also, below the BTR picture, the only explicative text is:
"Burned out tank at the outskirts of Konna - Northern Mali"

No projection of the upper hull between the 2nd and 3rd wheel + judging by the wheel pattern and design - BTR-60.

BTR 60 or 80 are very different in terms of their wheels.


I agree with Marc
