UN soldiers patrol in KidalTwo UN peacekeepers from Guinea and a civilian contractor were killed Saturday in a rocket attack on a UN base in northeastern Mali claimed by the jihadist Ansar Dine group, a week after a deadly siege at a Bamako hotel shocked the country. The United Nations peacekeeping mission in Mali (MINUSMA) said in a statement that the pre-dawn attack on the camp in Kidal also left some 20 people injured, four of them seriously. The UN Security Council urged the Malian government to “swiftly investigate this attack and bring the perpetrators to justice”.
