En 2012, lors du déclenchement de la crise au Mali, les violences ont semblé être circonscrites au nord du pays, dans les régions de Gao, de Tombouctou et de Kidal. Trois ans plus tard, en 2015, leur intensification dans les régions du centre a progressivement mobilisé l’attention des autorités maliennes ainsi que des observateurs internationaux.
In 2012, at the start of the crisis in Mali, violence appeared to be limited to the north of the country, in the Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal regions. Three years later, in 2015, the intensification of violence in the central regions has increasingly drawn the attention of the Malian authorities and international observers.
