In the northern Malian town of Gao, heavy fighting to oust Islamists has devastated a wide area around the City Hall.

About 15 rebels were killed when Malian forces bombarded the building following reports that Islamists had infiltrated the town.

Local people whose market stalls were destroyed complained they had lost their livelihoods in the combat.
