Three killed in rocket attack on UN base in northern Mali

  • At least three people were killed when a UN peacekeepers' base was targeted in Mali, reports say.

    Those killed in Kidal in the northern part of the country include two UN peacekeepers from Guinea, according to UN officials.

    The incident comes after militants attacked a hotel in the capital Bamako eight days ago. More than 20 people were killed in that siege.

    About 10,000 troops from several countries are part of the peacekeeping mission in Mali.
