A Top UN Envoy in Mali

A top United Nations envoy in Mali is pushing the country’s military leaders to allow UN forces to visit a village where Human Rights Watch claims the Malian army and foreign soldiers suspected of being Russian recently massacred an estimated 300 people.

The executions in Moura, according to the rights group, were the biggest single atrocity reported in Mali’s 10-year long battle with Islamic militants. Mali’s army stated on April 1 that during an operation in late March, it had killed at least 203 insurgents in Moura.

The government has begun its own inquiry into the killings. Should UN peacekeepers be allowed to conduct their investigations in the country?
