Mali: 7 Civilians Killed & 10 Peacekeepers wounded

Armed assailants, riding motorcycle, killed seven civilians on Thursday, in northeastern Mali, near the Niger border.
The Menaka area is often the scene of clashes between, on the one hand, jihadists linked to ISISI terror group and, on the other hand, two Tuareg armed groups, the Malian army and the French Barkhane force.
In addition, ten UN Mission peacekeepers in Mali (MINUSMA) were injured when their vehicle hit a mine on Thursday morning while patrolling northern Malian town of Kidal, United Nations said.
