Soldiers stand in front of a rocket pod launcher and weapons seized from Islamist fighters exhibited by the Malian army in the centre of Gao on February 24, 2013. Tuareg militias battled Arab rebels in northern Mali Saturday, while French jets, US drones and Chad's elite desert forces were also in action in a major push to stamp out resistance from pockets of Islamist fighters. After recapturing the north's cities from the Al Qaeda groups that had controlled them since April 2012, the six-week-old French-led offensive took the fight to the retreating Islamist insurgents' toughest desert bastions.
