The Myanmar Times - - World -

A United Na­tions peace­keeper was killed and four others were in­jured when their ve­hi­cle struck an ex­plo­sive de­vice in north­east Mali. The in­ci­dent oc­curred 11 kilo­me­tres from Aguel­hoc-Ane­fis in Ki­dal re­gion, the UN force in Mali, Mi­nusma, said on Au­gust 7, adding that both the dead soldier and those in­jured were from Chad. The ve­hi­cle was part of a sup­ply convoy. Less than three hours later, a Mi­nusma ve­hi­cle was dam­aged by a road­side bomb near the town of Ki­dal while on pa­trol about 2km from the mis­sion’s base, but no one was hurt.
