Two peacekeepers killed in attack on UN base in Mali

195 Days ago

Bamako: Two Guinean peacekeepers in the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) were killed and 30 injured in an attack in Mali on Friday.

The attack began around 6.55 a.m. (local time) when rockets were launched on the UN forces camp in the town of Kidal, Xinhua quoted sources as saying.

The attack lasted for less than two hours but left numerous victims. Eyewitnesses said a UN helicopter also came under attack.

The UN force reacted immediately. "A fighter jet has been deployed to track down the terrorists," an official said.

Security measures have been reinforced around the UN Mission in Kidal.

The attack occurred when the German president is expected in Mali this Friday for a 24-hour visit.

Germany is currently leading the European mission that trains the Malian army. Berlin is soon expected to send 650 additional soldiers to the UN Mission in Mali. (IANS)
