Militants opened fire on two Bangladeshi United Nations peacekeepers in Mali's capital Bamako on Monday, killing one and wounding the other, security sources said.
"Armed men that we have not yet identified shot at two peacekeepers who were on board a UN vehicle on Monday night. One of them was killed and the other seriously wounded," a Malian security source told AFP.
A source from MINUSMA, the UN's peacekeeping mission in Mali, told AFP the two UN soldiers were Bangladeshi.
