A mortar attack in restive northern Mali has killed one United Nations peacekeeper and seriously wounded two others in their camp near the Algerian border, the UN said Tuesday.

The statement from the UN peacekeeping force Minusma on Monday’s attack at the Aguelhok camp did not provide nationalities, but most of the UN troops there are from Chad.

“Mortar fire targeted the Minusma camp in Aguelhok”, the force said in a statement, adding “it took the life of a peacekeeper and seriously wounded two others.”

The United Nations has deployed 13,000 troops in Mali to serve in the Minusma force, considered one of the deadliest missions in peacekeeping.

Mali’s north fell under the control of Tuareg-led rebels and jihadist groups linked to al-Qaeda in 2012.
