Women in northern Mali

The deployment of a United Nations peacekeeping mission for Mali is in the works.

The country is facing a political crisis following a military coup in March last year and the occupation of the northern part of the country by armed rebels.

This has in turn created a humanitarian crisis with hundreds of thousands of people displaced and others becoming refugees in neighbouring countries.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
