Mali's army chief said on January 22 that his French-backed forces could reclaim the northern towns of Gao and fabled Timbuktu from Islamists in a month, as more offers of aid poured in for the offensive. French planes bombed a major base of the Al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) near Timbuktu as local sources said a mansion belonging to Libyan former strongman Moamer Kadhafi was destroyed.
