MALI-CONFLICT

Units of the French army gather near Sevare, on January 23, 2013. African forces on Wednesday began moving towards Mali's centre, the French foreign minister said, as pressure grew on Malian troops over summary killings in a Paris-led assault on Al Qaeda-linked groups. Nearly two weeks after France swept to Mali's aid to stop an Islamist advance towards the capital Bamako, reports emerged of atrocities committed by Malian soldiers and growing fears of attacks among light-skinned ethnic communities.
