AU Supports Mali Mission

The African Union has endorsed a plan for military intervention in Mali, where Islamists have seized control of its desert north, the AU’s Commissioner for Peace and Security said Tuesday.

The AU Peace and Security Council “has decided ... to endorse a harmonized concept of operations for the planned deployment of AFISMA, which is the African-led mission in support of Mali,” Ramtane Lamamra told reporters, speaking after an AU peace and security meeting in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
