UN peacekeeper, two civilians killed in Mali attack
A peacekeeper from Togo and two Malian civilians were killed in an attack on a military convoy in Mali, rounding off a bloody week for foreign forces stationed there. Seven other peacekeepers, also from Togo, were wounded in the attack in the central Mopti region, according to the statement by the UN mission. After a mine or improvised explosive device was detonated, attackers opened fire on the convoy, the UN said, without identifying the assailants. More than 11,000 UN police and military are currently serving in Mali.
