At around 1:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon, a MINUSMA vehicle hit a mine in the vicinity of Anefis, Kidal region, while escorting a convoy of subcontractors of the Mission.
Seven peacekeepers were injured in the explosion, six of them seriously. All of them were immediately evacuated to receive appropriate medical care and MINUSMA forces secured the site.
