At least two Senegalese UN troops were killed Saturday in a suicide attack in Mali's northeastern rebel bastion of Kidal, a day before a second round of legislative polls, a UN source said.
The soldiers died when a suicide bomber ploughed his explosives-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, referring to the UN mission in the country.
The suicide bomber also died, a regional government source told AFP.
