An al Qaeda-linked Islamist group in Mali has claimed responsibility for an attack that killed 10 U.N. peacekeepers from Chad on Sunday in the north of the country, the group said in statement posted on Telegram.

The Nusrat al-Islam wal Muslimeen group said the attack was a response to Chadian President Idriss Deby's revival of diplomatic relations with Israel.
