ADDIS ABABA - Africa face s a serious threat from alQaida and its allies trying to set up a sanctuary in northern Mali, African leaders said on Saturday as they pondered political and military strategies aimed at reuniting the divided West African state.

The leaders meeting at the African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa are seeking to resolve messy aftermaths of military coups this year in Mali and Guinea-Bissau which have put blots on the continent's democratic credentials after advances in stability and governance in recent years.

They are also seeking to reconcile feuding neighbors Sudan and South Sudan after the latter's independence last year split what used to be Sub-Saharan Africa's largest country.
