Fighters from the Tuareg separatist rebel group MNLA walk in the desert near TabankortBAMAKO/DAKAR (Reuters) - Pro-government armed groups in Mali seized the northern town of Menaka from Tuareg separatists on Monday after fierce fighting, a spokesman for the group and a resident said. The clashes between the armed groups comes after months of relative calm and risks derailing a fragile U.N. peace process that aims to settle the future of Mali's desert north, known by separatists as Azawad. The vast region has been hit by four insurgencies in the last five decades, with rebels fighting for independence or a form of self-rule from the government in the south, which they accuse of neglected their homeland. Militants from the Gatia pro-government group and a faction of a northern Arab militia also favourable to the government camp, the Arab Azawad Movement (MAA), attacked the town on Monday morning, a Gatia spokesman said.
