In this document Amnesty International presents preliminary findings of its most recent mission in Mali. Civilians have reportedly been extrajudicially executed by the Malian military since 10 January 2013 and at least five civilians were killed in an air attack launched in the context of the joint French and Malian counter offensive aiming to take over the town of Konna. Human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law have also been committed by armed Islamist groups including unlawful killings and the use of child soldiers.
