Islamists and army renew fighting in Mali

Mali is seeing new clashes between government troops and Islamist rebel groups.

Fighting resumed in the central African state after the rebels attempted to move towards the south.

Last year, several groups associated with al-Qaeda were captured in the north of Mali.

The Islamists exploited the fact that the central government was weakened after the March coup.

Since the coup Shariah Law has been established in the northern provinces of Mali by the radical Islamic factions.
