Mali

Yearbook 2006

Mali. According to CountryAAH, an old conflict flared up again when the Tuareg militia in May attacked two military outposts in northeast M. No bloodshed occurred, as the soldiers fled into the desert. The Rebels withdrew already a day later after stealing weapons and supplies. After a major Tuareg uprising in the 1990s, the region was granted increased autonomy and most militiamen were successfully incorporated into the army and the state administration. Even this limited rebellion had a quick solution. With the help of Algerian mediation, the government and Tuareg governments were able to sign a peace agreement at the end of June following new promises of service in the army.
