UN chief condoles death of Bangladeshi peacekeepers in Mali
United Nations (UN) Secretary General Antonio Guterres has sent a letter of condolence to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, after the death of three Bangladeshi peacekeepers and the injury of four others in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack while escorting a logistics convoy in northern Mali on September 24, 2017. In the letter, the UN chief said: “I am writing to convey to your Government and to the bereaved families my heartfelt condolences on this terrible loss, and wish a speedy recovery to those injured. I would like to express my appreciation for the contribution made by these peacekeepers in support of the implementation of the mandate of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).” “I would also like to express to you my gratitude for the invaluable support that the government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh continues to provide to our peacekeeping operations, including MINUSMA,” he added. According to an Inter Services Public Relation Directorate (ISPR) press release on Sunday, Bangladeshi UN peacekeepers engaged a group of terrorists and drove them back last Saturday. However, the criminals ambushed the peacekeepers as they were returning to the UN camp on Sunday. The peacekeepers successfully defended themselves, but triggered an IED buried in the road. The resulting explosion left three dead, and injured four peacekeepers.
