Dozens of Taliban killed fighting in west Afghanistan

Dozens of Taliban fighters were killed in U.S. air strikes and a gun battle in western Afghanistan after an insurgent attack on an Afghan army patrol, NATO and Afghan officials said on Friday.

A spokesman of the International Security Assistance Force said the patrol came under attack in Gulistan district in western Farah province on Wednesday, prompting a call for air support.

"Numerous insurgents were killed, and several motorbikes were damaged or destroyed" following two strikes by coalition aircraft, he said.

Abdul Raoof Ahmadi, a police spokesman in western Afghanistan, said 30 Taliban were killed and another 15 wounded in the fighting in the remote area.

Rebel assault on strategic Mali garrison town of Gao

Tuareg rebels in Mali have attacked the strategic northern garrison town of Gao with heavy weapons, hours after another town, Kidal, fell to them.

Two army helicopters were scrambled in response, a local official told AFP news agency by phone.

Gao, with a population of 87,000, more than twice the size of Kidal, hosts one of the biggest garrisons in the north.

"We can hear heavy fire coming in the direction of the main military camp," a Reuters reporter said.

Mahamane Diakite, an aide to the governor of Gao, told AFP: "We can hear heavy weapons fire. We have also seen two helicopters taking off to shoot. Rebels have entered the town."

Mali army abandoned two towns

The Mali army said early on Friday it had pulled its troops out of two more towns in the country's north-east, hours after Tuareg separatist rebels forced them out of the strategic town on Kidal.

“We have strategically abandoned our positions in the towns of Ansogo and Bourem to reinforce our positions in Gao,” the army said in a statement.

After heavy fighting, Tuareg separatist rebels and an allied armed Islamist group on Friday entered the strategic town of Kidal, 1 000 kilometres from the capital, on Friday.

On its website, the MNLA spokesman Bakaye Ag Hamed Ahamed said it would “continue the offensive against two other regional capitals to dislodge the Malian regime and its army.”

Sudan says South backs rebel attack, builds up troops

Sudan said South Sudan was supporting a rebel attack on a town in the border state of South Kordofan and building up troops at an oil-producing border area where both countries fought for two days, state news agency SUNA said on Friday.

The fighting ended when southern troops moved out of the disputed Heglig oil field on the Sudan side of the border after Juba accused Khartoum of bombing southern oil fields.

"South Sudan supported the rebels with tanks and artillery," he said, adding that rebels on Friday had attacked the town with artillery but failed to take it. Rebels fled to regroup to launch another attack.

The Sudanese army accused the SPLA of amassing troops at the border south of Heglig. "The goal is to attack the Heglig area another time," Saad said.

Somali rebels repel AU/government attack on airstrip near capital

Somalia's al Qaeda-linked militants clashed on Friday with African Union and Somali government troops, who are struggling to extend their control to territory beyond the capital where the Islamist rebels are still able to fire mortar barrages.

The spokesman for the Burundian contingent of AU troops said his unit had been unable to capture the airstrip in Daynile district, al Shabaab's last major stronghold at the edge of Mogadishu.

He said 20 al Shabaab fighters had been killed in the fighting, while one Burundian soldier had died and four were wounded.

The rebels have fired mortar rounds at the presidential palace over the last two weeks, killing at least seven people in the area around the palace. A suicide bomber blew himself up outside the gate of Villa Somalia, as the presidential palace is known.

Dozens killed in heavy Somalia fighting

Heavy fighting between a government-allied militia and Al Qaida-linked rebels in central Somalia killed dozens of fighters on Tuesday, residents said, as Islamist militants also stepped up attacks in the capital.

Dusamareb, 560km north of Mogadishu and the capital of Galgadud region in central Somalia, has been under the control of the Ahlu Sunna militia group for years.

Residents said Al Shabab, which controls two other towns in the region, stormed Dusamareb early on Tuesday, looting shops and cars before they were repelled by Ahlu Sunna.

"The death toll has now risen to about 50, this includes five civilians. Al Shabab also kidnapped a local elder they linked to the [Ahlu Sunna group]," Ali Hussain told Reuters from Dusamareb.

Those Tuaregs look extremely well armed with a lot of Russian equipment acquired in Libya.

I did notice that.

To be fair a large part of the developing world where conflict is most likely, is Muslim.

Mali rebels seize key northern town

"The two military camps of Gao have fallen into the hands of the different rebel groups," an aide to the regional governor told AFP by telephone, referring to the city that served as army headquarters for the entire northern region.

"Gao is in their hands," the aide said.

Gao was rocked by heavy gunfire Saturday and fell after the head of the junta that seized power in Bamako on March 22 ordered the army not to fight the advance.

Captain Amadou Sanogo said in a statement late Saturday that "the Mali forces have decided not to prolong the fighting" around Gao because of the civilian population.

"A more viable security plan will be put in place so that the whole territory of Mali will not be violated," Sanogo said in the statement.

It was not immediately known how many people were killed or injured in the fighting.

Mali army deserts Gao bases: sources

Soldiers in the Malian army deserted the main military bases around the key northern town of Gao on Saturday after a rebel assault, military and civilian sources said.

One civilian source said rebels already occupied the two main bases around the town while another source just one of the two camps was now under rebel control. A Reuters reporter in Gao said there was no fighting in the town itself.

Mali rebels say they surround Timbuktu

Tuareg separatist rebels in Mali say they have surrounded the historic town of Timbuktu after a rapid advance through the north of the country.

Eyewitnesses in the town say they have heard heavy weapons and machine-gun fire, apparently being directed at a military base.

Troops appear to have deserted the base, a resident told BBC News.

Two other important centres, Kidal and Gao, fell to the rebels and their Islamist allies in recent days.

A resident who spoke to the BBC's Thomas Fessy said the Malian army had fled but a Malian Arab self-defence militia, backed by local businesses, was still defending Timbuktu.

Mmmm yes.......................or it could be that since muslims are required to wage jihad against infidels that it is impossible for them to ever live in peace with their neighbours.
