Suspected Islamist militants attack Mali UN base, several dead

Suspected Islamist militants attacked a UN peacekeepers' base in the northern Mali town of Kidal on Friday, killing several people and wounding others, a spokesman for the separatist Coordination of Azawad Movements (CMA) told Reuters.
"There is gunfire and mortar fire against the MINUSMA (UN peacemaking mission) camp. It is an attack by the Islamists, apparently involving a suicide car bomb. There are some dead and wounded but I do not know the exact number," said CMA spokesman Radouane Ag Mohamed Aly.
