A rocket and car bomb attack on French and UN soldiers in Mali has left one person dead and many others injured.
Militants disguised as UN peacekeepers - in distinctive blue helmets and driving a vehicle marked with the UN logo - struck two bases near the airport in Timbuktu.
The UN mission confirmed one of its peacekeepers had been killed.
More than a dozen others, including many French soldiers, were wounded, according to the government.
In a statement, the security ministry said the attack involved dozens of rockets fired by militants “wearing blue helmets”. Two vehicles were also packed with explosives.
