The United Nations mission in Mali says at least one peacekeeper has been killed and four others wounded in an attack in the country's north.

The mission said a U.N. vehicle hit an improvised explosive device early Sunday in the Kidal region about 11 kilometers (7 miles) from Aguelhok killing the peacekeeper and injuring four others. A second attack, near the U.N. mission camp in Kidal, left no casualties but damaged equipment.
