Bamako: At least five peacekeepers were killed and one critically injured in an ambush against a convoy of the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali (Minusma), an official said.
In a statement that did not provide information about the nationalities of the victims nor the perpetrators of the ambush, head of Minusma, Mahamat Saleh Annadif "strongly condemned the incident" that occurred on Sunday.
"This crime was an addition to other terrorist acts that have targeted peacekeepers, something that constitutes crimes against humanity according to international law," he said.
He said "every effort will be done to identify the perpetrators of the odious crime".
The report raised particular concern about the increasing use of AI by law enforcement, including as forecasting tools.
Ali Kalora was one of two militants killed in the raid, said Central Sulawesi's regional military chief Brigadier General Farid Makruf. He identified the other suspected extremist as Jaka Ramadan
Police are treating the death as a homicide, the report said. A man was arrested in connection with the murder but was later released.
