BAMAKO (Reuters) - Gunmen attacked Malian government forces in the northern desert town of Kidal on Sunday, a local official said, three days after Tuareg separatist rebels broke off a ceasefire with the newly elected government.
"We are under fire. The shooting is taking place all over Kidal," said regional governor Adama Kamissoko in Kidal, a long-standing base for the MNLA separatist rebels. "The armed group attacked and the army has responded."
