Mali rebels committed to fighting radical Islamists

CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Tuareg fighters - rebels committed to fighting radical Islamists.

The Tuareg retreated from better armed and more powerful al-Qaeda linked militias. They want their own country in Mali's north, which they call, Azawad. They tell Burnett that they will fight with the Mali government to beat the Islamists.

    Why is the crisis in Mali not receiving coverage like the rest of the Middle East? No oil in Mali..no reason for us to care?

      I agree with Nicole – this is a important story that has to be told.
