Human rights abuses taking place in Mali, claim HRW

In the 2 months since France launched its military offensive against Islamists in Mali, French, Chadian and Malian troops have liberated all the areas that had been seized. For them, the mission's been an success, but that doesn't mean stability is back in Mali just yet. NGO Human Rights Watch says ethnic communities in Mali, especially the Arab and Tuareg minorities, are allegedly being targeted by soldiers and civilians. Many have fled, fearing accusations that they fraternised with the enemy.
