Two peacekeepers killed as suicide bomb hits bank in northern Mali
By Adama Diarra and Tiemoko Diallo BAMAKO (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed two Senegalese U.N. peacekeepers and destroyed the only operating bank in the northern Malian town of Kidal on Saturday, one day before a second round of parliamentary elections. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the car bombing at 0645 local time (1:45 a.m. EST) on the Malian Solidarity Bank, which was being guarded Mali's army and the U.N. peacekeeping mission known as MINUSMA. "A car bomb targeted MINUSMA forces and the Malian army who were guarding the building of the Malian Solidarity Bank in the centre of Kidal," said a statement by MINUSMA, which condemned the attack. A military source said MINUSMA troops were guarding the outside of the bank while the Malians protected the inside.
