Photo Gallery: The Northern Mali Conflict

Since January 2012, terrorist rebels, mainly affiliated with al-Qaeda, have fought the Malian government for control of Mali’s northern region, the former state of Azawad. The two sides have swapped wins and losses over the year, but the conflict has escalated to the point that the French government had to step in recently. Click through to see photos related to the conflict, which depict the multiple levels of political and human turmoil.

Prince Amadou Toumani Touré was forced into exile and resignation on March 22, 2012 via coup d’état for his handling of the Northern Mali conflict. A group of rebel soldiers calling themselves the National Committee for the Restoration of Democracy and State took power and suspended Mali’s constitution.
