MINUSMA Condemns Attack on FAMa Checkpoint

MINUSMA condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against a checkpoint of the Malian army that took place on 1 September on the road to Taoudéni, in Timbuktu region, killing two members of the Malian Armed Forces (FAMa) and wounding one.

MINUSMA extends its condolences to the families of the victims, to the Government of Mali, as well as to the FAMa, and wishes a speedy recovery to the soldier who was injured.

MINUSMA expresses a warning against the perpetrators of this attack, which contributes to the deterioration of the security situation, at a time when Mali and the international community are implementing the Peace and Reconciliation Agreement.
