Seven Togolese peacekeepers from Minusma* were killed on Wednesday in an improvised explosive device attack in Mali, announced Jean-Pierre Lacroix, the United Nations Deputy Secretary General in charge of peacekeeping operations.
“These crimes must not go unpunished,” he insisted.
A logistics convoy was going from Douentza to Sévaré. It struck an explosive device on the RN16, in the Bandiagara region.
In addition to the 7 dead, 3 serious injuries are to be deplored.
