OUAGADOUGOU: Rebels from Mali's minority Tuareg group are ready to sign a regionally brokered peace deal with the government paving the way for the conflict-torn country to hold elections, a source in their delegation said Tuesday.

"We won't obstruct the process," the source told AFP. "When the time comes, we'll sign no problem," he added in neighbouring Burkina Faso, where a source in the Malian government's delegation earlier said the other side was also ready to sign a deal but wanted some final changes made.
