Mali armed groups sign peace deal

Mali's desert north has struggled for stability due to rival armed factions, drug trafficking and jihadismFormer Tuareg rebels in northern Mali and rival pro-government armed groups said they sealed a peace deal Thursday to end hostilities after days of talks. Mali was hit by violence between the two sides in August and September despite a peace deal signed earlier this year. Officials from the Tuareg-led Coordination of Movements of Azawad (CMA) and the Platform, a coalition of pro-government groups, told AFP they reached agreement on a “pact of honour” after nearly three weeks of talks in Anefis, 100 kilometres (60 miles) southwest of the regional capital Kidal.
