Mali: Al-Qaeda al-Murabitoun battalion claims attack that killed 1 chinese peacekeeper and 3 civilians


Al-Qaeda’s North African branch has claimed attacks in northern Mali that killed a Chinese UN peacekeeper and three civilians, the US-based monitoring group SITE said Wednesday.

The attacks on Tuesday come days after five UN peacekeepers were killed in an ambush in central Mali, as concern grows over the future of the UN’s deadliest active mission.

“Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) reported that its al-Murabitoun battalion engaged in a clash with ‘Crusader occupation forces’,” referring to the UN mission in Mali, SITE said, adding that the jihadists called it an “epic battle”.

AQIM said in a statement its fighters were “thrashing” the enemy.

Al-Murabitoun, led by one-eyed Algerian militant Mokhtar Belmokhtar, has claimed responsibility for several spectacular and bloody attacks in sub-Saharan Africa.
