Militants opened fire on troops at a national guard camp in northern Mali Wednesday, killing two soldiers and a child, security sources told AFP.The gunmen struck at 5:00 a.m. in the town of Goundam, 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the ancient city of Timbuktu, a Malian security source said.The attack, which has not been claimed, comes a day after the head of MINUSMA, the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Mali, voiced concerns for the west African nation's fragile peace process.Mali was upended by a coup in 2012 which opened the door for Tuareg separatists to seize the towns and cities of the vast northern desert with the help of several Islamist groups.
