Shelling and rocket fire on a UN camp in the troubled Malian city of Timbuktu killed one person and wounded nine peacekeepers, the United Nations mission in the country said on Wednesday.

“A mortar and rocket attack was launched against the MINUSMA camp in Timbuktu,” a UN statement said, using the UN mission’s acronym.

“The provisional toll is nine wounded among the peacekeepers, four seriously who are being evacuated to Bamako. The attack also killed one person, they are still being identified,” it added.
