Gunmen Attack UN Base in Mali Killing 7 People

"We mourn the loss of a United Nations peacekeeper killed in Mali earlier this morning while serving with our UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission (MINUSMA) following an attack by armed assailants on a MINUSMA camp in the town of Douenza", MINUSMA said in a note on social media. A Malian security guard and six peacekeepers were also wounded in the incident. In 2015 six United Nations troops were killed and five others injured in an attack on their convoy in the Timbuktu region.

"A first group of assailants fired at a MINUSMA camp from an adjacent hill".

MINUSMA says they "responded immediately by deploying a rapid reaction force to secure the Mission's headquarters and attack helicopters to track down potential attackers". Suspected jihadists attacked a restaurant in neighboring Burkina Faso Sunday, killing 18 people.
