France kills militants in Mali

By on May 1, 2017

France says its forces in West Africa have killed and captured more
than 20 militants in a forest near Mali’s border with Burkina Faso.

A French military spokesman said the militants had been targeted in the Foulsare forest, in the south-west of Gao province.

Violence has also intensified in neighbouring Burkina Faso. In January last year, 29 people, many of them foreigners, died in a attack on a hotel in the capital Ouagadougou.

On Saturday, Mali’s National Assembly voted to extend a state of emergency by six months in a bid to quell an upsurge in attacks.
