Mali: Islamist rebels take another city

Published: 01.10.13, 18:44 / Israel News

Mali's Islamist rebels seized control of the central city of Konna Thursday, encroaching further on government-held territory, said the rebels' spokesman.

 

Konna, a city of 50,000 people 700 kilometers (435 miles) northeast of the capital Bamako, fell from the government to the rebels, Sanda Abu Mohammed, spokesman of the Ansar Dine rebels, told The Associated Press on the phone from Timbuktu. The fall of Konna marks a significant push by the rebels to Mali's center. (AP)
