Mali attack: Rocket kills three at UN base at Kidal

Three people have been killed in a rocket attack on a UN peacekeepers’ base in northern Mali, the UN says.
Two UN peacekeepers from Guinea and a civilian contractor were killed in the attack in Kidal, officials said.
Eight days ago, gunmen attacked a hotel in the capital, Bamako, taking scores hostage. Twenty-two people were killed.
The peacekeeping mission in Mali was approved in 2014 after France led a military campaign to drive out Islamist militants from the north. CONTINUE
