Soldiers from a unit allied with the leader of last year's military coup in Mali stormed the camp of the former president's guard Friday morning, and at least one person was killed and five were wounded, witnesses said. The bloodshed underscores that Mali's military is in disarray and in poor shape to confront without outside help the well-armed Islamists, many of whom have combat experience.(AP Photo/Thomas Martinez)
