The Armed Forces mourned on Sunday the death of an Egyptian peace-keeper who fell martyr in an explosive charge blast in Mali recently.

Armed Forces Spokesman Colonel Gharib Abdel Hafez said the explosion killed a non-commissioned officer and the injured three others and offered condolences to the family of the martyr and wished a speedy recovery to the wounded.

The Armed Forces affirmed that its role in peace-keeping emanates from its belief in the importance of peace, co-existence and elimination of terrorism under the umbrella of the United Nations, said the spokesman.
