Former Tuareg rebels in northern Mali and rival pro-government armed groups said they sealed a peace deal on Thursday to end hostilities after days of talks.

Mali was hit by violence between the two sides in August and September despite a peace deal signed earlier this year.

But jihadist armed groups still represent the main threat in the region, carrying out regular attacks and laying mines.

Officials from the Tuareg-led Coordination of Movements of Azawad (CMA) and the Platform, a coalition of pro-government groups, told AFP they reached agreement on a “pact of honour” after nearly three weeks of talks in Anefis, 100km southwest of the regional capital Kidal.
