On what the UN chief described as a "tragic day for the UN family", at least 12 Tanzanian peacekeepers serving in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have been killed during an attack on Thursday night.

Secretary-General António Guterres "unequivocally" condemned the attack against troops with the UN Mission in the country, MONUSCO, on Friday morning, describing it as the worst assault on peacekeepers in recent UN history.
