As this whole issue in Northern Mali sputters along, it seems that trouble in Paradise is beginning to emerge.

Didn't even take that long...former allies are already enemies and rivals. Allies accidentally shoot allies when trying to shoot former allies.

May not be a major issue today, but the Malian Army has not even tried to assert authority over the region....what happens to this bowel 'movement' once they come...which is a certainty?

Oh well...it seems anyone that read a book can construct a stable state in this day and age.

I suppose the real lesson is...never form an alliance with religious fanatics, as its only a matter of time before they betray you.

Death toll, injuries mount from Mali rebel clash

The tenuous truce between two of the rebel groups controlling northern Mali was shattered on Wednesday, as the rebel faction bent on creating an Islamic state fought its way into the buildings used by a secular rebel group. The latter was forced to beat a retreat and one of their leaders was airlifted abroad after being shot in the leg.
Resident Hamadada Toure said that he had cowered inside his home during the morning, when the clash started after fighters belonging to the Islamic faction, known as MUJAO, parked a car loaded with weapons 50 yards (meters) from the headquarters of the secular rebel group, the National Movement for the Liberation of the Azawad.
