  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Mali unrest: what impact on the fight against jihadist groups in the region?” – below is their description.

    #Mali’s former coup leader Assimi Goita took control of the country again Tuesday after firing the president and prime minister of the transitional government following their announcement of a cabinet reshuffle without his permission. The overthrow of democratically elected President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita came amid mounting #military casualties in the fight against Islamic militants linked to al-Qaida and the Islamic State group. France and the United Nations have troops in Mali as part of a counter-#terrorism operation. What impact is this latest unrest likely to have on those missions? France 24’s Wassim Nasr gives his analysis.
