The nomads fighting for years for self-government and withdrew in 2012, together with the Muslim extremists who conquered a large part of Mali in a trice. The Gatia militia claims to defend the interests of a specific ethnic group Tuareg, but seems to thwart the protagonists of their own Tuareg state.
