Our peacekeeping colleagues in Mali report that over the weekend two of their armoured vehicles that were part of a Force convoy were hit by two separate improvised explosive devices – better known as IEDs.

Finally, I have an update from Afghanistan. Our UN team there, led by Resident Coordinator Ramiz Alakbarov, called for urgent collective action to halt the devastating impact of climate change in the country.

On Syria, senior UN officials in the region have expressed their deep concern over the escalation of hostilities in the country’s north-west.
