An inhabitant of Gao, inspects the wreckage of a motorbike used by a suicide bomber who blew himself up at a checkpoint north of Gao, recently retaken from Islamist rebels, February 8, 2013. A soldier was injured, a Malian officer told Reuters. It was the first reported suicide bombing since the French-led military operation launched on January 11 expelled the Islamist rebels from their desert strongholds of Gao, Timbuktu and Kidal.
