An Islamist group carrying out public executions and amputations in northern Mali this week said it now rejects "all forms of extremism and terrorism" and is ready to talk with the government.
He also said the group, which controls the fabled town of Timbuktu and large swaths of the north, would "observe a complete secession of hostilities to guarantee free movement of persons and goods and to facilitate relief operations in the zones under their control."
Representative Mohamed Aharid said the group is "ready for a frank and constructive dialogue with all national bodies representing the traditional authorities of Mali."
