BAMAKO, Feb 10 (Reuters) - The Red Cross said on Monday that one of its vehicles carrying five people went missing two days ago in northern Mali between the towns of Gao and Kidal.

Jean-Yves Clemenzo, a spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross based in Geneva, said all five of the people on board the vehicle were Malian.

Despite a French military presence in Mali for over a year, the government is still battling pockets of armed Islamic militants carrying out sporadic attacks. (Reporting by Adama Diarra, Stephanie Nebehay and Emma Farge; Writing by Bate Felix)
