French Jets Bomb Northeast Mali

The French military says its aircraft have attacked Islamist militant positions in northeast Mali, just hours after President Francois Hollande visited the African country.

Military officials say the overnight raids hit militant training and logistics sites in the areas of Kidal and Tessalit, close to the Algerian border.

On Saturday, Mr. Hollande told Malians that terrorism has been repelled and chased out, but not yet conquered.

    Bribery not bullets have proved to be the best way of keeping peace among Islamists. The French should stop being so cheap and start spreading around the bucks.
