United Nations peacekeepers and
wounded five others, the UN said.
All of the victims were from Burkina
The mission in Mali is one of the
deadliest for the UN, with 42 peace-
keepers killed and 166 wounded since
it was established in April 2013. UN
chief Ban Ki-moon quickly condemned
the latest violence.
The convoy was attacked in the
morning about 45 kilometres (27 miles)
south of Timbuktu while patrolling
on the road between Goundam and
Timbuktu, the mission said. Rein-
forcements were being sent to the
attack site, including helicopters for

The Mauritanian Al-Akhbar news
agency reported that al-Qaeda in the
Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility
and said it killed seven peacekeepers.
The agency regularly carries credible
claims of responsibility by jihadist
groups. The reason for the discrepancy
between the number killed and the
number the group claimed to have
killed was not immediately clear.
"Those responsible for this heinous
crime must be identified and brought
to justice as soon as possible," said the
UN s Mali envoy, Mongi Hamdi.
Northern Mali has been engulfed in
conflict for years. A French-led military
intervention launched in 2013 scattered
the Islamic extremists who had taken
the north, though the region remains
insecure. In recent months, violence
has extended farther south.
Earlier this month, Mali s main
coalition of Tuareg separatist rebels
signed a peace agreement with the

CASTING HER VOTE
in attack in
leopard mauled a guide
in an attack on an
open tourist safari
vehicle in South
Africa s flagship
wildlife park yesterday,
The attack happened
in Kruger National Park
as a guide and his pas-
sengers watched a leop-
ard about 6.5 feet (two
metres) from their vehi-
cle, the park said. The
leopard "cunningly dis-
appeared" around the
side of the vehicle and
then leaped and
grabbed the guide s
arm, according to a
Tourists in the vehi-
cle hit the leopard with
whatever objects they
had, but the leopard
only let go of the
guide s arm after a
tourist in another vehi-
cle drove up and scared
it away, the park said.
William Mabasa said
the guide was able to
drive the vehicle away
from the scene, and
was treated for wounds
on his right arm and
Rangers later shot
and killed the leopard,
which was ill, emaci-
ated and also injured
after being hit by the
vehicle carrying the
guide and tourists,
according to Mabasa.
He said tourists who
get close to leopards,
lions and other poten-
tially dangerous animals
should be vigilant.
"Never take your
eyes off the animal
because you don t
know what the animal
is thinking," he said.
