French Troops in Mali – Update

United Nations peacekeepers prepared Monday to take over from African troops in Mali with a mission to ensure stability in the conflict-scarred nation just four weeks ahead of crucial elections.

A 12,600-strong force will take over security duties from French troops who entered Mali in January to halt an Islamist advance and help the government re-establish its authority over the vast country.

France is winding down its deployment from its peak of nearly 4,500 but is to keep up to 1,000 troops in Mali and will maintain responsibility for military strikes against the Islamists.
