FILE - In this Friday, July 26, 2013 file photo, rebels from the National Movement for the Liberation of the Azawad (NMLA) stand guard outside the former governor's office, in Kidal, Mali. Mali's new president-elect Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, whose rival conceded defeat Monday, Aug. 12, a day after the vote, now faces the challenge of finding a resolution to the simmering separatist rebellion in the country's north. Based on his recent campaign visit to the rebel's stronghold, during which the NMLA tried to block his plane from landing, and then hurled stones at it while parked, the path to reconciliation is not likely to be an easy.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell, File) less
