second five-year term
in elections.* *source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-13881978 December 2008 At least 20 people are killed
and several taken hostage in
an attack by Tuareg rebels on
a military base in northern Mali. After the end of the uprising in Libya, large numbers of Tuareg, who had fought for Muammar Gaddafi in the Libyan civil war, return to their home country, many heavily armed. The Tuareg rebellion is reignited in northern Mali, with the aim of establishing an independent Tuareg state called Azawad.* *http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2012/03/2012322111037483270.html January 2012 March 21/22, 2012 Fears of new Tuareg rebellion following attacks on northern towns which prompt civilians to flee into Mauritania.* *http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-13881978 Military officers depose President Toure ahead of the April presidential elections, accusing him of failing to deasl effectively with the Tuareg rebellion. West African leaders' efforts to assess the situation stall, and the African Union suspends Mali. May 2012 The junta reasserts control after an alleged coup attempt by supporters of ousted President Toure in Bamako. The al-Qaeda-affiliated Ansar Dine Tuareg group is reported to destroy a Muslim shrine in Timbuktu, prompted fears from UNESCO that the city's ancient mosques are in danger. Where Volunteers Serve
