UN concerned about 1.2 million people affected by conflict in MaliListen /
The People of Mali continue to suffer in the crisis that intensified last year when fighting broke out between Tuareg rebels and government forces.

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