FILE - In this Saturday, July 27, 2013 file photo, women hold separatist flags as they demonstrate against the vote, on the eve of the presidential election, in Kidal, Mali. Longtime politician Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, who many hope will hold strife-torn Mali together, heads into the presidential runoff election on Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013 as the clear favorite. Whether Keita will win such a strong mandate across Mali, though, remains unclear in a country where northern rebels do not fly the national flag and pelted his plane with rocks on a campaign stop there. This West African country's pivotal election is aimed at unlocking some $4 billion in aid promised by international donors after more than a year of turmoil.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell, File)
