Event

On Saturday, May 18, two separate attacks targeted the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) forces in the northern Timbuktu and Kidal regions. In Timbuktu, armed men robbed a vehicle belonging to the MINUSMA, killing one Nigerian peacekeeper. In Tessalit (Kidal region), three Chadian peacekeepers were injured when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb. Further such incidents are possible in the coming days and weeks.

Context

Advice

The security environment in Mali remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.

Due to the underlying terrorist and kidnapping threats prevalent in the country, all those present in Mali are advised to remain discreet regarding personal details, particularly information concerning nationality, employment, family, etc. Individuals are also advised to avoid public events and places frequented by Westerners, to remain vigilant at all times (especially in local markets, now used by terrorists as recruitment grounds), and to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities.
