Seven UN peacekeepers were injured on Friday when their vehicle hit an improvised explosive device in central Mali, the United Nations peacekeeping mission announced.
The device exploded beneath the vehicle which was travelling near Diallo, in the central Mopti region, MINUSMA, the UN peacekeeping mission, tweeted.
The nationality of those injured wasn’t given.
MINUSMA head El-Ghassim Wane firmly condemned “these cowardly acts which are intended to disrupt the course of our operations”.
Jihadist fighters use IEDs against national and international forces in Mali. The victims are often civilians.
Since 2012, separatist and jihadist rebellions in northern Mali have plunged the country into constant conflict that has left thousands of civilians and fighters dead, despite international help.
