Three killed in Suicide Attack on UN Contractors in Mali

Three killed in Suicide Attack on UN Contractors in Mali

At least three civilians were killed and four foreigners working for a United Nation-contracted mine-clearing operation wounded in a suicide attack on Monday, November 12 in the country’s violence-hit north. The attack, claimed by the Group to Support Islam and Muslims (GSIM), a fusion of three Malian jihadist groups allied with Al-Qaeda took place in the city of Gao at around 8:00 pm (2000 GMT).

Mali has been struggling to return to stability after Islamist extremists linked to Al-Qaeda jihadists took control of the north in early 2012, prompting a military intervention by France. The extremists were routed in the French operation in 2013, but large stretches of the landlocked African state remain out of government control.
