- Front Populaire de Libération de l'Azaouad
- (FPLA)A Tuareg rebel movement, based in Mauritania, that launched military attacks in the north of Mali in 1991 after the 26 March coup d'état. It was founded and led by Rhissa Sidi Mohamed in 1990. He refused to sign the proposal of the Malian government during the National Pact in 1992 in response to the Tuareg demands of autonomy in the north of the country, although representatives of refugees in Algeria and Mauritania supported it. He later agreed to support the National Pact. The FLPA is a splinter group that broke away from the Movement Populaire de l'Azaouad (MPA). The FLPA was also consumed by internal struggles with the Front Islamique Arab de l'Azaouad (FIAA).
