The terrorist attack on a MINUSMA convoy in the Mopti region left five MINUSMA peacekeepers dead, just days after a similar attack killed five Malian soldiers in the vicinity of Menaka. This targeted violence against the forces tasked with restoring security in Mali and facilitating the implementation of the Peace Agreement is unacceptable. The perpetrators of these acts must be brought to justice.
Journalists are invited to apply for the 2016 European Union-QANTAS Journalist Award. The award is open to an Australian journalist with more than three years working experience in print or electronic media. They will need to satisfy the selection panel that he or she would benefit from a working visit to the European Union institutions and two to three Member States. While the subject of the project proposal is open to the journalist's particular interests, it must be based on European themes relevant to an Australian audience.
