14 Peacekeepers Killed and 40 wounded in DR Congo Attack.

8 December 2017 – At least 14 United Nations ‘blue helmets’ in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have been killed and many more injured, in what the Secretary-GeneralAntónio Guterres described as the “worst attack” on UN peacekeepers in recent history.

Late Thursday, a MONUSCO (the UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC) Company Operating Base at Semuliki in Beni territory, North Kivu, was attacked by suspected Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) elements, resulting in a protracted fighting between the suspected armed group elements and MONUSCO and Armed Forces of the DRC, known by the French acronym, FARDC.

These deliberate attacks against UN peacekeepers are unacceptable and constitute a war crime” said Secretary-General António Guterres, adding: “I condemn this attack unequivocally.”

Further, calling on the DRC authorities to investigate the incident and swiftly bring the perpetrators to justice, the UN chief stressed: “There must be no impunity for such assaults, here or anywhere else.”

In his remarks, he also said that the attack is another indication of the challenges faced by UN peacekeeping operations around the world and acknowledged the sacrifices made by troop contributing countries in the service of global peace.

“These brave women and men are putting their lives on the line every day across the world to serve peace and to protect civilians,” he noted, offering condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed and a speedy recovery to those injured.

All of the peacekeeping troops killed in the brutal attack which reportedly lasted some three hours were from Tanzania. In addition, three members of the contingent are reported to be missing in action.

According to Ian Sinclair, the Director of the UN Operations and Crisis Centre (UNOCC), initial figures indicate that 53 peacekeepers been injured, of whom three critically, but the numbers could rise.

Members of the FARDC have also been killed and injured in the attack but numbers are yet to be confirmed, Mr. Sinclair told reporters at a news briefing at the UN Headquarters, in New York.

“Our reinforcements have arrived on the scene and a search is ongoing for the missing soldiers,” he said, noted that the wounded have been evacuated from the area, among whom some have been further evacuated to more advanced medical facilities in Goma, DRC.

“Further medical evacuation is possible for seriously injured,” he added.

The volatile North Kivu region, located in eastern DRC, has witnessed a number of attacks on UN peacekeeping forces. In October, two UN ‘blue helmets’ were killed and another 18 were injured their base was attacked by the ADF armed group.

Yemen Attack Fears Close UN offices but Embassies Remain Open

SANAA: The United Nations  closed its offices in the Yemeni  capital on Thursday over fears of possible car bomb attacks but Western  embassies remained open.

Most shops in Sanaa  were shuttered and little traffic ventured  out onto the streets as rumours swirled among the city’s residents of the risk  of an imminent attack.

The American and Turkish schools were also closed.

Security forces have been on high alert in the capital since a brazen  daylight attack on the defence ministry’s sprawling headquarters on December 5  killed 56 people, among them expatriate medical staff.

Information gleaned during the investigation into that attack, which was  claimed by Al-Qaeda, led to the discovery of two cars packed with explosives and  a massive search for five more suspected to be still inside Sanaa.

A UN source said Wednesday that a warning from Yemeni authorities of a  possible attack in Hada, the south  Sanaa neighbourhood where UN offices are  located, had triggered the closure order.

“Staff of the UN mission and UN agencies  have received instructions not to  turn up for work on Thursday,” the source said.

The source said it was a “precautionary measure following advice from Yemeni  security authorities”. The guidance warned of the “risk of possible acts of  terrorism in certain places, particularly in Hada.”

But a senior Yemeni security official said no warning had been issued through  authorised channels and dismissed the alleged guidance given to the UN as part  of “a campaign of rumours aimed at spreading fear in the country.”

Western embassy  security chiefs met with Yemeni  officials on Wednesday and no attack warnings were issued,” the official told  AFP, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The US embassy  said it remained open and referred all  questions about security to the Yemeni government.

The British and French embassies were also operating normally.

In August, a security alert originating in Yemen  prompted an unprecedented closure of  American embassies across and beyond the Middle East, which was mirrored by the  British and French missions in Sanaa.
