The UN reports 123 fatalities within MINUSCA since 2014 (up to 31 August 2020). Of these fatalities, 40 are attributable to “malicious acts.”[i] The UN defines “malicious acts” as fatalities as a result of “war; invasion; hostilities; acts of foreign enemies, whether war be declared or not; civil war; revolution; rebellion; insurrection; military or usurped power; riots or civil commotion; sabotage; explosion of war weapons; or terrorist activities.” In contrast, “accidents” are defined to include “stray bullets, friendly fire, and road accidents” and other incidents, such as natural disasters.
