MALI-FRANCE-CONFLICT

A Malian soldier stands guard near a strategic bridge on the Niger river on January 16, 2013, near the town of Markala. French soldiers from the 21st Rima (French Navy Infantry Regiment) arrived in the town to secure the strategic bridge on the Niger river on January 16, 2013 after leaving the capital Bamako the day before. After days of airstrikes on Islamist positions in the northern territory the rebels seized in April, French and Malian troops battled the insurgents in the small town of Diabaly, some 400 kilometres (250 miles) north of Bamako.
