Northern Tuareg rebels shot at United Nations peacekeepers in Mali outside the town of Timbuktu on Tuesday amid growing tensions that threaten a fragile peace process, the country's UN mission said.

"They fired at us and they then called us to tell us that they thought we were (Malian government soldiers), that it was a mistake," mission spokesman Olivier Salgado said, noting that no one had been wounded in the shooting.
