Mali forces accused of executing rebels

The Paris-based International Federation for Human Rights yesterday accused Malian forces of “summary executions” and other abuses as they counter-attack Islamists in the west African country’s north with support from French air power and troops.

It said that Malian forces were behind about 33 killings – including ethnic Tuaregs – since fighting erupted on 10 January.
