Safety fears for rally organisers
Dakar Rally organisers have cancelled two stages in Timbuktu after receiving safety warnings from local officials.

Mali's government have advised against competing in an area covered by stages 10 and 11, which were to run between Nema in Mauritania, and Timbuktu.

The 10th stage will now become a loop stage from Nema, while the 11th stage also stays within Mauritania from Nema to Ayoun-el-Atrous.

The rally starts on 6 January in Lisbon and runs for two weeks.
