The French reported an act of sabotage near the railroad station of Kayes-Gare (near the river in Kayes) on January 6, 1939. It turned out to be a broken switch that resulted from an error by an employee named Soula, not a deliberate act of sabotage. The error was compounded when a foreman (sous-chef de gare Casazza) neglected to report it.
