Unidentified gunmen have attacked a base for UN peacekeepers in the northern Mali town of Kidal, a peacekeeper at the base said.
Residents of Kidal heard mortar fire as the attack occurred on Saturday morning, a witness told Reuters news agency.
There was no immediate comment from the UN force (MINUSMA).
French troops and the UN force are struggling to stabilise the former French colony where rebels attacked a hotel in the capital on November 20 and killed 20 people.
