At least two UN troops dead in suicide attack in north Mali


At least two UN troops were killed on Saturday in a suicide attack in Mali's northeaster rebel bastion of Kidal, which came a day before the country holds a second round of legislative polls, a UN source said.

The soldiers were part of the UN peacekeeping force known as MINUSMA and died when a suicide bomber ploughed his explosive-laden car into a bank that they were guarding. "For the moment, we have at least two dead and several wounded among the MINUSMA African troops," the source said on condition of anonymity.
