BAMAKO: Mali's government and several armed groups signed a peace accord on Friday (May 15) in a ceremony attended by numerous heads-of-state but missing the crucial backing of the main Tuareg-led rebel groups.

The Coordination of Azawad Movements (CMA) had provisionally initialled the document a day earlier but is demanding concessions and its three principal factions did not attend the rubber-stamping ceremony in the Malian capital Bamako.
