Malian soldiers, who have been guarding the town's main market overnight, finish up their shift before the opening of the market, in Kidal, Mali Saturday, July 27, 2013. Portions of the market were burned and looted last week after ethnic clashes broke out between Tuaregs backing a regional separatist movement and Songhai supporting the return of Malian state control. The desert town of Kidal and the villages surrounding it make up just 0.5% of the people who registered to vote in Mali's election. Yet experts say the future of Mali is likely going to be decided by how the region that has been at the epicenter of multiple rebellions handles tomorrow's vote. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell) less
