French troops on Sunday consolidated gains in Mali's Islamist-held north as Paris said the aim was its 'total reconquest' and Canada, Germany and Russia offered vital aid for the offensive. The Al-Qaeda-linked group that shocked the world with its audacious hostage attack in neighbouring Algeria threatened meanwhile to stage further reprisal strikes on nations involved in chasing out Islamists from Mali.
