Mali: UN Sec Gen, Guterres condemns attack on peacekeepers as Nigerian dies





Antonio Guterres, the Secretary-General of United Nations, has condemned Sunday’s attacks on the United Nation’s Integrated Stabilization Mission for Mali (MINUSMA) in Timbuktu and Tessalit.

The attack caused the death of a Nigerian peacekeeper, who succumbed to his wounds following the armed attack by unidentified assailants in Timbuktu.

Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the Secretary-General, in a statement sent to DAILY POST, expressed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and to the Government of Nigeria.

“He wishes a speedy recovery to another Nigerian peacekeeper who was wounded in the same attack”, it added.

“He also wishes a swift recovery to three Chadian peacekeepers, who were wounded when their mine-protected vehicle hit an improvised explosive device in Tessalit, Kidal region.

“The Secretary-General recalls that attacks targeting United Nations peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law.

“He calls on the Malian authorities to take swift action to identify the perpetrators of these attacks and promptly bring them to justice.”

The Secretary-General further reaffirmed the solidarity of United Nations with the people and the Government of Mali and its support to their quest for peace and stability.
