Two UN peacekeepers and a civilian were killed in a rocket attack Saturday on a UN base in the northeastern Malian city of Kidal, UN sources said.
"Our camp in Kidal was attacked early this morning by terrorists using rockets," said an official from the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali (MINUSMA), adding that two Guinean UN peacekeepers and a civilian contractor were killed. A local official confirmed the report.
Another UN source said 14 others were injured in the attack.
