The U.N. Stabilization Mission in Mali, or MINUSMA, said two peacekeepers from Burkina Faso were killed and 11 were injured during an attack on a camp in Ber and four peacekeepers from Togo were injured in an attack in Konna.

MINUSMA said peacekeepers based in Ber “repelled a complex attack, launched simultaneously by several pickups armed with rocket launchers and machine guns” early Saturday and hours later peacekeepers came by improvised explosive devices in the Mopti region.
