Attack Against MINUSMA Camp in Kidal

Mr. Mahamat Saleh Annadif, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Mali (SRSG), said Friday that MINUSMA was "outraged" by the deadly attack against its camp in Kidal.


Friday at 7 am, MINUSMA camp in Kidal was the target of a complex attack which, according to a provisional toll, has killed three peacekeepers and wounded 30 others.


« My duty, on behalf of the Secretary-General, is to express our outrage over this hateful and irresponsible act occurring a week after the local arrangements between CMA and Platform, and 48 hours after my visit to Kidal,” said the SRSG expressing his indignation.


"This serious act reflects the disarray of the enemies of peace since it comes at a time when the implementation of the Peace Agreement increasingly becomes a reality in Mali,” he added.


Mr. Annadif expresses its deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured.
