with an ongoing jihad to scam pay well this latest incident follows a similar attack earlier this month which killed $35.00 people according to the government but the locals say that number is higher. never again the attacks must stop the call of a vigil held in bamako for hundreds killed in violence this year they're demanding answers from the government. we're asking authorities to tell us the truth on what's going on in our country. we don't understand what's happening here. because what's happening and what's being said is unlike us. a lot of them of course we cannot accept what is happening in mali into ethnic conflict. today i saw next to me the code in representative who used. the you are delivery

presented if barbara and the r.p.m. representative who's also from a different ethnic group i myself i'm a pill. some here believe the government has given up resigned from solving the escalating conflict president. cut short a trip to switzerland last week to visit the graves of victims of one of the most recent attacks he blames the violence and jihadist groups with links to al qaeda in the slum extenuate who control a lot of territory in the north of the country you know there's no interethnic conflict i say this very clearly. there's an increase of what we saw in the north and of what we continue to live in the north. which is looking to put on a mask but they won't surprise us because we know what it's about and from the moment we know about a problem the solution is very close but that's something many increasingly quo.
11:34 pm
some warn the situation could spiral further out of control. and my wish is that the whole of mali understand what we are living through it is extremely serious because if we don't watch out it will break up the country reckon and will not be limited to the zones that will enter our cities and vengeance will settle everywhere he's receiving military help from france and from the un but that hasn't prevented the recent surge in attacks and seems unlikely to bring come soon. again so the situation in mali is pretty complex and to just help us make sense of it john if his health is the project director for west africa for the crisis group he joins me now from brussels welcome to deja vu africa and if so you'll organization has come out on record saying that the job hardest insurgency in mali and the government's military operations against it are exacerbating that into

communal violence can you explain that. well it's it's rather simple each side being the g i d r. my and the 3 keys are trying to use proxies the jedi basically are trained to get a fruit in central money and started 4 years ago to. recruit among the sunni communities among which they have been you know more successful among other communities for a different kind of reason and one of them being one of the kids yet leaders having to find central money is him self freddie on the side i think that the money on the r.b.i. has difficulties fighting the jedi war extremely good at. fighting in the room country side so basically they're also looking to call it allies the good proxy that's going to help both provide information on our war you know fight against the
11:36 pm
jedi fight fighters so basically they're using the community or trying to use some of these dougal and they have been former izing or so be shut out of the don't go so in the year and the fight between the government and the jihad the is actually i think if i didn't you know what tensions. already. tense relationship between have it and he had to go it's a dramatic ok so the violence we've seen that fall is taking place in the rural areas in the else so to say their own voice is in mali warning that that fight inst could come to the city where these communities co-exist in other parts of the country. that's a possibility but we should stress the fact that no so far most of the violence is contained in the rural countryside if you back tension to recent incidents it's mostly villages that have been attacked but it's true that in some of the i would
11:37 pm
say you know me their size like. mary that increasing tensions because actually you do of members of each community living in the cities all right my last one seeing their all calls in the country some people say that the government needs to talk to the jihadists and that's something that as far as i understand the government has been reluctant to do i think the idea of talking to terrorists doesn't quite appeal to them but some people are calling for that and what that helps to sit at a table with these jihadists where the international crisis group is among people calling for such a dialogue we have in fact the jihadist groups we have released a report recently on this issue especially focusing on central money we believe that this kind of dialogue is going to be extremely difficult for a number of reasons one being that both sides are right no. you know for to post to the idea of dynamos but we have also documented instances in which luckily
