Two United Nations peacekeepers were seriously injured on Saturday when their vehicle triggered a landmine in northern Mali.

MINUSMA, the UN's peacekeeping mission in the volatile west African nation, said the vehicle, part of a logistics convoy, hit the explosive device some 70 kilometres east of the small town of Ansongo.
