Splits divide Tuareg-held territory

Rebels in Mali's north have seized territory and declared independence, but not everyone is happy.



    During Mali's recent political instability, Tuareg rebels seized large parts of the country's north, and declared it an independent state, which they called Azawad.

    But, while Azawad is yet to be recognised by any international organisations, not everyone inside the rebel-held territory is happy about their presence.
