Mali’s rebel leaders face UN sanctions over continued attacks

Jamaat Nusrat Al Islam Wal Muslimin, an umbrella organisation including al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for some attacks.

Fighting continues in Mali four years after peace accords were signed, with at least 4,000 people killed since 2013 and 167 in the latest attack. People are taking to the streets calling for French and foreign troops to leave Mali.
