Spokesman of French army general staff Thierry Burkhard gives a press conference on the operation in northern Mali, on January 18, 2013 in Paris. 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.
