Mali family blame UN peacekeepers for death in custody

The Mali mission is the most dangerous active deployment for UN peacekeepers and has been hit by sharp internal tensions since its launch in July 2013The family of a Malian civilian who died after being arrested by peacekeepers following a deadly jihadist attack claimed his death was due to abuse in custody as the UN Friday promised to “shed light” on the incident. Five Chadian peacekeepers were killed in the ambush in northeast Mali on May 18 and a sixth died of his wounds on May 24, according to the latest toll from the UN mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Three suspects were arrested, one of whom “died on May 19 in the hours following his apprehension” while the other two were released, MINUSMA said last week as it announced the launch of an internal inquiry.
