Malian army seeks out remaining rebels in Gao
2013-02-22
[FRANCE24] Malian troops opened fire on the mayor's office in the northern town of Gao with mounted machine guns on Thursday to try to dislodge suspected Islamist gunnies holed up inside, witnesses said.

Gunfire and kabooms rang out in the early hours across the town, where French and Malian troops have been working to secure the area against bombings and guerrilla attacks by Salafist tough guys, witnesses said.

French and Malian military spokesmen were not immediately available to comment on what led to the clash.
