Mali troops search Gao for militants after attack

In Mali government troops are carrying out house-to-house searches for Islamist militants in Gao following their surprise attack on the northern town on Sunday.

They were driven out of the town a fortnight ago, and while reports say the army is back in charge, for those who live in Gao tensions are high once more.

Alex Jakana reports.
