  •  PARIS/BAMAKO (Reuters) – Malian government troops drove back Islamist rebels from a strategic central town after France intervened on Friday with air strikes to halt advances by the militants controlling the country’s desert north.

Western governments, particularly former colonial power France, had voiced alarm after the al Qaeda-linked rebel alliance captured the town of Konna on Thursday, a gateway towards the capital Bamako 600 km (375 miles) south.

President Francois Hollande said France would not stand by to watch the rebels push southward. Paris has repeatedly warned that the Islamists’ seizure of the country’s north in April gave them a base to attack neighboring African countries and Europe.

  1. The police should have been more vigilant. They should have seen them coming and started firing into the air. This incident will wake them up nationally now and thus make them to be quicker off the mark for next time.

  2. France ups terror threat level after Mali strike

    PARIS — The French president says the country will raise its domestic terror threat level after military action in Mali and Somalia, promising to increase protection at public buildings and transportation networks

    President Francois Hollande said Saturday he had ordered increased security after the French military operations in the two African countries against Islamist forces.

    France has some of the world’s most recognizable monuments and a wide-ranging national transportation network; like the U.S., it also has an organized government response if there are specific fears of a terrorist attack.

    French aircraft and troops are backing soldiers in Mali who are trying to push back Islamist offensives; in Somalia, French commandos launched a failed raid to rescue an intelligence agent held hostage there for three years.
