Shortly after the attack, MINUSMA (Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali), the UN force working to stabilise Mali, said the attack had caused an unspecified number of casualties.
“The attack happened at around 4am. Four or five rockets landed inside the base. Quite a few people were wounded, but it’s too early for a precise number,” spokesman Olivier Salgado told Reuters.
