Tuareg separatists said on Thursday they had seized control of several towns in northern Mali after routing government forces but they would respect calls for a ceasefire. Malian government officials were not immediately available for comment. Attaye Ag Mohamed,an official with the Tuareg National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad said the MNLA took the towns without a fight, after government troops either abandoned their positions and sought refuge at the camps of the U.N. peacekeeping mission or fled south.
