MINUSMA condemns the attack against EUTM headquarters in Bamako
The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) strongly condemns the attack against the headquarters of the European Union Training Mission in Mali (EUTM) which took place last night around 18:30. The attack by unidentified armed men was successfully repelled and no casualties nor injuries were reported among EUTM staff.
“This criminal and despicable act is even more deplorable as it targeted one of Mali’s main partners, working here to give support and assistance to the country in strengthening its armed forces capacity to ensure the restoration of State authority throughout Malian territory. The enemies of peace are behind this act and those responsible must be identified and brought to justice,” said Mr. Mahamat Salah Annadif, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Mali and Chief of MINUSMA.
