MALI-CONFLICT-GAO

Picture taken on February 24, 2013 in the centre of Gao shows material use to make IED explosive (Improvised Explosive Device) seized from Islamist fighters by the Malian army. Tuareg militias battled Arab rebels in northern Mali Saturday, while French jets, US drones and Chad's elite desert forces were also in action in a major push to stamp out resistance from pockets of Islamist fighters. After recapturing the north's cities from the Al Qaeda groups that had controlled them since April 2012, the six-week-old French-led offensive took the fight to the retreating Islamist insurgents' toughest desert bastions.
