Explosion in Mali kills 3 UN peacekeepers  


The Chinese Battalion (ChnBatt) runs two patrols daily around the perimeter of UN House in Juba. The patrols pass through Protection of Civilians site 1 and runs past the entrance to Protection of Civilians site 3. Regular stops are made to check in with peacekeepers manning guard posts.

Three United Nations soldiers were killed and five others were seriously wounded by an explosive device that detonated as they were escorting a convoy in Mali, the West African nation’s peacekeeping mission said on Sunday.

The convoy was travelling between the towns of Anefis and Gao in Mali’s volatile north when the explosion occurred at around 7 a.m. (0700 GMT), a statement from the mission, MINUSMA, said, adding that the death toll was provisional.
