A UN peacekeeper and two Malian civilians were killed in an attack on a military convoy. In addition, seven other UN peacekeepers are wounded.

After an improvised explosive device was detonated, attackers opened fire on the convoy.

The local police are investigating the incident. But the fact, that civilians and peacekeepers were at the same time and place during the attack, is the special interest for law enforcement officers. According to the rules, they should not be together in order to prevent similar cases.
