Malian women shop in the deserted market in Gao, northern Mali, Tuesday Feb. 12 2013. Soldiers patrol the downtown area in an effort to secure it from Mujao infiltrators, two days after Mujao fighters engaged in a firefight with Malian forces.The attack in Gao shows the Islamic fighters, many of them well armed and with combat experience, are determined and daring and it foreshadows a protracted campaign by France and other nations to restore government control in this vast Saharan nation in northwest Africa.(AP Photo/Jerome Delay) less
