Front de Libération de Temust
(FLT)
   Tuareg liberation group operating in the Temust area created after the splintering of the Front de Libération de l'Aïr et de l'Azawad (FLAA) in August 1993. "Temust" in Tuareg means "culture." Led by the late Mano Dayak, it was part of the coalition of various Tuareg resistance groups currently combined under the Coordination de la Résistance Armée (CRA). In April 1995, the FLT refused to agree to a peace agreement with the government of Niger that was signed by another Tuareg coalition, l'Organisation de la Résistance Armée (ORA). The FLT and its allies remained opposed to the peace agreement and continued to maintain its base of resistance in the Ténéré Desert east of Agadez.
