Memorial Ceremony for Burkinabé Blue Helmets in Bamako, Mali, 2014

Memorial ceremony held in honor of two Blue Helmets from Burkina Faso killed in a suicidal attack in Ber, Timbuktu region, on August 16, 2014. Despite initial security improvements in 2013, the situation in Northern Mali has deteriorated since the beginning of 2014. An increase in incidents involving improvised explosive devices, mostly targeting Malian and international security forces, has impeded the return to normalcy and resumption of economic and development activities.
