    When Gaddafi was overthrown alot of those Libyan weapons ended up in the hands of the Tuareg insurgents in the North, Gaddafi recruited alot of Tuaregs to fight for him and those guys came back to Mali with a shitload of fire power.

    Nobody really cares about Mali, its a very poor country of little significance to anyone, this story is barely making the news anywhere.

    Mali is ~90+% Tribal Muslim majority, thus this is a lather, rinse and repeat of Muslim internecine tribal warfare which can be see all over the Middle East as well. Ebb and flow...

    Tribalism

    Tribalism in Africa

    Look at the flash points all over the world. Watch Mali and see if there's a 'Spring' there. Not so, it's simply more thugs replacing thugs.
