The People of Mali continue to suffer in the crisis that intensified last year when fighting broke out between Tuareg rebels and government forces.

The crisis took another turn when Islamist extremists occupied the northern section of the country.

French and government troops are pressing ahead with their operations to reclaim territory from the radical Islamists.
