ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Three United Nations soldiers were killed and two others wounded by an explosive device as they were escorting a convoy in northern Mali on Thursday, the peacekeeping mission in the West African nation said.

"I condemn with the greatest energy such abject acts, whose only objective is to destabilize the country and harm the peace process under way in Mali," interim mission chief Koen Davidse said in a statement.
