The autonomist rebels of the Co-ordination des Mouvements de l'Azawad (CMA) alliance finally signed the northern Mali peace agreement on June 20th as they had promised after a final round of talks earlier this month.

The document had already been signed on May 15th by the Malian government and pro-government armed groups. The CMA had not been willing to sign up then after being pushed out of the eastern town of Ménaka by the pro-government Gatia militia, and doubts have persisted over how committed to the peace process the autonomists are.

However, their decision to send a heavyweight delegation to the signing ceremony suggests they are taking it seriously. The delegation included senior figures from the Ifoghas, the Tuareg tribe that is the main source of recruits for the CMA's main armed groups: the Mouvement National de Libération de l'Azawad (MNLA) and the Haut Conseil pour l'Unité de l'Azawad (HCUA).
