Two killed as suicide bomber attacks UN base in northern Mali

BAMAKO: Two UN peacekeepers were killed and nine others injured in a suicide attack on a patrol base in northern Mali, the UN peacekeeping mission (MINUSMA) said on Saturday. A vehicle exploded on Saturday morning next to the base in the village of Ber, about 60km (40 miles) east of the desert city of Timbuktu, the statement said. It did not give the nationalities of the soldiers, although one MINUSMA official said that both the soldiers who died were from neighbouring Burkina Faso.
