Four United Nations peacekeepers and a Malian soldier were killed in Mali on Friday in two separate attacks, the UN mission there confirmed.
The peacekeepers' nationalities have not been confirmed.
UN troops have been in Mali attempting to stabilise the country since 2013.
The country, bordering Niger and Burkina Faso, has struggled with Islamist militants who have regularly attacked international peacekeepers and the Malian military.
The UN mission there, Minusma, has had 146 deaths, and has the highest number of fatalities of current UN operations.
