Malian Tuareg Separatist Group Denounces UN Mission's Passivity

BAMAKO - A Tuareg separatist group denounced the United Nation's mission in the north of Mali (MINUSMA) as passive in the face of violence on Wednesday.

In an internal document shown to EFE, the Coordination of the Movements of Azawad (CMA) separatist movement said MINUSMA was indifferent to and refusing to act against violence committed by the Platform, a coalition of Tuareg pro-government armed groups.

The document collected all the instances of violations of the peace accords by the Platform against CMA supporters between Sept. 6-19 in the northern Kidal region, including 10 alleged extrajudicial executions and several kidnappings, mutilations, attacks, fires and robberies.

The CMA and Platform signed peace deals in June 2015, but armed clashed between the two Tuareg groups remained constant, generally motivated by arguments over territorial control.

MINUSMA has been active in Mali 2013 with more than 15,000 troops and police officers present.

At least 106 UN agents have been killed in the region since, primarily due to jihadist attacks, making it one of the most dangerous UN missions.

MINUSMA has frequently been accused of not adequately upholding peace between the opposing Tuareg groups in the country's north, a region still reeling from years of conflict.
