New French President to visit Mali

France sets 2040 deadline for sales of petrol, diesel cars

New French President Emmanuel Macron will visit French troops based in Mali later this week.

Former colonial power France intervened in Mali in 2013 to drive out al Qaeda-linked militants who seized northern Mali the year before.
Mr Macron, who was inaugurated on Sunday, has already spoken on the telephone to two French soldiers wounded in Mali.

France has a 3,000-strong force fighting against Islamist militants in five countries in the Sahel – Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Chad and Mauritania.
