URGENT ¥¥¥ Fresh fighting erupts in northern Mali: security sources

Fresh fighting erupted in northern Mali on Saturday, security sources told AFP, the latest unrest to hit the area in the wake of a French-led campaign that drove radical Islamist fighters from major cities.

Fighters from the ethnic Tuareg MNLA group were battling an unidentified armed group near the northern town of Tessalit, where suicide car bombers killed three people the day earlier, two security sources told AFP.
