Islamic Movement of Azawad (IMA)

A new group that has split from Ansar Dine and which calls itself the Islamic Movement for the Azawad, is led by Alghabass Ag Intalla, a prominent leader of the Tuareg ethnic group. The split within Ansar Dine came after French airstrikes halted the southward advance of rebel groups trying to push toward the capital, Bamako. The latest group to be formed is at least the sixth to join the fray in northern Mali, where groups liked to Al Qaeda have overrun the secular Tuareg nationalists who initially started the latest rebellion early last year. The groups include the Algerian-dominated AQIM; the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, based in Gao, which is believed to be led by a Mauritanian; and the Malian-led Ansar Dine. The group says it dissociates from Ansar Dine and wants to negotiate for a peaceful settlement of the crisis in Mali.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.
