AFRICANGLOBE – The Malian military attacked Tuareg terrorists early Wednesday and succeeded in taking the village of Anefis, marking the army’s first victory and territorial gain without the help of foreign forces ever since they were routed from the country’s north last year by the Al-Qaeda linked fighters, officials on both sides said. At least two people were killed in the clashes.
Reached by telephone, the mayor of Anefis said that the confrontation began at 6:30 a.m. just west of the town. Anefis is 113 kilometers (70 miles) south of Kidal, and the last locality before the provincial capital that serves as the base of the Tuareg terrorist group MNLA. For weeks, the Malian army has been inching up toward Kidal, while the rebels have dug in and brought reinforcements, vowing to go to war if the military attempts to attack the strategic city.
