FRANCE-MALI-CONFLICT

A photo taken, in Paris, on January 18, 2013 shows a map projected during a press conference of the spokesman for France's Army staff, on the operation in northern Mali. France confirmed today that Malian troops had taken control of the key central town of Konna from armed Islamists who seized the country's vast desert north in April last year. The town was taken last Friday by Islamist groups, generating fears the capital Bamako could be vulnerable and triggering the French intervention. French-backed Malian troops today recaptured a second town from Islamist rebels, running them out of Diabaly, about 400 kilometres (250 miles) from Bamako, security and local sources said.
