The french prasident makes only selfless reason for the opening of the war in mali
France has at least achieved together with the malische army first military successes in mali. According to fights, where 100 islamists should have been killed, but also a french helicopter pilot died, the islamists from the provincial city of konna, 700 km north of the capital bamako, should have been expelled again. Also used were fighters of the type mirage and F1 from chad. Which goal has the intervention in the country in which a militar coach chased the other, is not quite clear. Democracy is probably not as the french prasident claims, probably mainly about the stability of a state power, which is friendly to the west opposite and the islamists.
A french lieutenant said the city will be completely controlled again. Above the number of dead, especially whether including civilians, there is also ambiguity as it is about which groups the islamist campers have accused. In addition to al-qaeda in the islamic maghreb, north also control the groups ansar dine and mujao, which have returned the tuareg. According to the french minister of defense jean-yves le drian on friday, the french pilot was worn at an attack on an islamist force, which had moved further to suden. You have "several terrorist units" destroyed and stopped your advance.
