Peace­keeper killed, eight wounded in at­tack

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A UN peace­keeper was killed and eight oth­ers in­jured in an at­tack on their camp in north­east­ern Mali near the Al­ge­rian bor­der, the United Na­tions said. UN Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon con­demned the four co­or­di­nated as­saults tar­get­ing the UN mis­sion known as MINUSMA and said that at­tacks on peace­keep­ers are war crimes. Fol­low­ing a spate of mor­tar rounds fired at the Aguel­hok camp, two mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles were dis­patched and hit an ex­plo­sive de­vice “that led to the death of a blue hel­met”, MINUSMA said.
