A French soldier holds a 12.7 mm machine gun and stands guard atop an armored vehicule as a convoy of French army soldiers arrives in Sevare, in the Mopti region of Mali, on February 1, 2013. President Francois Hollande prepared to visit Mali as French-led troops worked today to secure the last Islamist stronghold in the north after a lightning offensive against the extremists. Hollande, whose surprise decision to intervene in Mali three weeks ago has won broad support at home, will travel to the fabled city of Timbuktu and hold a working lunch in the capital with Mali's interim president Dioncounda Traore, the Malian presidency said.
