It is notable that Mali is facing communal tensions arising out of terrorist activities over the years.
Here in March about 160 people were killed in a massacre against the Fulani cowboy community.
Due to this the government had removed the head of the Armed Forces from the post.
There is continuous violence in the atmosphere of political instability.
There is also a conflict between the government and there is no solid campaign against the active militants.
Because of this, such violent factions have now established their parallel empire in many areas.
