Tuareg Families Regroup to Avoid Airstrikes in Northern Mali

We must regroup so that airplanes can tell us apart from the targeted ismalists fighters who will be on the move.

Tuareg refugees in Borj and Timeaouine in Northern Mali are hurrying to gather around their family members in order to avoid airstrikes by French planes against islamist groups, Tamoudre reports [fr]. Tamoudre adds that Tuaregs are in favor of the military intervention but that they should be part of the post-intervention stabilization.
