A suicide bomber has blown himself up in the northern Mali town of Gao - the country's first such case, sources say.
The attacker approached a group of soldiers on a motorbike before detonating an explosive belt, injuring one of them, a Malian officer told AFP.
Gao is the most populous city in northern Mali, which was captured by Islamist militants last year.
Meanwhile, there are report of exchanges of fire between rival soldiers in the capital, Bamako.

1. The terrorists there are definitely
well-funded and well-armed, probably trained in Pakistan.
Pakistan's most well-known export is terrorism.
Just a quick search found this: http://dawn.com/2012/06/08/afghans-pakistanis-training-militants-in-mali-niger/
Pakistan is an international menace.

2. Follow the Money
and it will lead you right to the Wahabis in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are the real menace. They fund these Terrorist organizations. Without the Money, these Hillbillies would be scratching their butts out in the Cactus Patch.
