Events in Mali had gone from bad to worse during 2012. In January an uprising by ethnic Tuareg in the north forced thousands to flee to Niger. In March mutinous soldiers in the south seized power, overthrowing President Touré, replacing the government with the Comité National pour le Redressement de la Démocratie et la Restauration de l’Etat (CNRDR) (National Committee for the Return of Democracy and the Restoration of the State). Lieutenant Amadou Konaré of the CNRDR was reported as saying that the coup was in response to the president’s failure to quell the uprising in the north. However, the coup itself allowed the two groups involved in the northern rebellion – the Mouvement National pour la Libération de l’Azawad (MNLA) (National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad) and Ansar Dine, an Islamist group, to strengthen their hold in the main northern towns, including Timbuctu and Gao.
