Mali separatists to suspend participation in peace talks

BAMAKO (Reuters) - Separatists in northern Mali will suspend their participation in peace talks until fighting with pro-government militia stops, the Coordination of Azawad Movements (CMA) said in a statement on Monday.

Fighting this month violated a peace agreement signed in June and the CMA’s decision will likely raise tension between it and the Platform pro-government militias and make it harder for the U.N. mission (MINUSMA) to restore a fragile peace.
