Crisis In Mali


After Mali's government was overthrown in a military coup in March 2012, insurgents, capitalizing on the ensuring power vacuum, seized much of the country's vast and sparsely populated northern territory. Three loosely connected Islamist extremist organizations-including Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization- currently control all major towns in the north, an area roughly the size of Texas. While the number of extremist combatants appears to be small, they appear to be increasingly entrenched, having largely ousted an ethnic Tuareg separatist group with which they were initially allied. The government in the capital, Bamako, is weakened by internal divisions and military interference. Years of corruption and mismanagement appear to have hollowed out many state institutions. Mali's leaders also face stark economic constraints amid an impending national recession and revenue crisis. At the same time, a regional food security crisis continues to cause suffering.
