Gunmen attacked and fired rockets at a U.N. peacekeeping base in Kidal in northern Mali on Saturday, causing an unspecified number of casualties, a spokesman for the U.N. force in Mali (MINUSMA) said.

World number one Jordan Spieth brilliantly kept alive a successful defence of his title on Saturday with an eagle at the penultimate hole on day three of the Australian Open in Sydney. It helped Spieth glide his way to an eventual round of 67, or four under par for a seven under par total. The double major winner was in second place, just three shots behind Australia's Matt Jones who had putted in off the green at the 17th for a birdie and then also birdied the last in a second straight score of 68 to finish at 10 under par.
