STORYLINE
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the attack on the UN camp and the French operation Barkhane’s camp in Timbuktu, Mali and recalled that “attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law.”

Complex attack against the UN and French military camps occurred on 14 April, during which one peacekeeper from Burkina Faso was killed, seven peacekeepers, seven French soldiers and two Malian civilians were injured.

It was the largest attack on a UN Mali camp since the deployment of the peacekeeping mission and the third attack against the Mission this month alone.

Briefing reporters in New York today (16 Apr) United Nations spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said the Secretary-General “recalled that attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law and that those trying to obstruct the peace process may be subject to sanctions” adding that ‘these acts will not deter the UN peacekeeping mission’s determination to support the Malian people in their quest for peace and stability.”

Guterres conveyed his condolences to the Government of Burkina Faso, and the family and loved ones of the deceased peacekeeper, and wished a swift recovery to all those injured.

He also “paid tribute to the courage of the men and women serving in the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali, as well as Malian and international forces who do so at great personal risk and sacrifice.”

It was the largest attack on a UN Mali camp since the deployment of the peacekeeping mission in 2013 and the third attack against the Mission this month alone.
