Rebels urge UN to remove 'security zones' in northern Mali

A Malian soldier patrols on a road between Gao and Kidal in northern Mali on July 26, 2013Mali’s main Tuareg rebel group on Wednesday urged the United Nations to lift “all the security zones” set up in the country’s north in response to deadly clashes between rival groups that have threatened to unravel a newly agreed peace deal. Three days of fighting between pro-government Tuareg militants and Tuareg rebels from the Coordination of Azawad Movements (CMA) prompted UN peacekeepers on Tuesday to install a 20-kilometre (12-mile) safe zone around the town of Kidal to protect civilians. In a statement, the CMA asked the UN mission in Mali (MINUSMA) to immediately remove “all the security zones established” and “let the different parties settle their differences”.
