The UN's representative in West Africa met Tuesday with a delegation from Ansar Dine, one of the Islamist groups currently occupying northern Mali, an AFP correspondent said.

Said Djinnit met representatives of the Al-Qaeda-linked group at a private residence in Burkina Faso's capital Ouagadougou, after earlier meeting Burkinabe President Blaise Compaore, the region's chief mediator for the Mali crisis.
