Malian army paratrooper Soumaila Coulibaly, aged 26, poses with an AK-47 assault rifle on February 25, 2013 in Gao, some 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) north of Bamako. After recapturing the north's cities from the Al Qaeda groups that had controlled them since April 2012, the six-week-long French-led offensive took the fight to the retreating Islamist insurgents' toughest desert bastions.
