French forces launch strikes in northern Mali

GOSSI, Mali — French troops launched airstrikes on Islamist militant training camps and arms depots around Kidal and Tessalit in Mali’s far north, French defense officials said Sunday, as the first supply convoy of food, fuel, and parts to eastern Mali headed across the country.

French planes pounded extremist training camps as well as arms and fuel depots from Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday, according to French Army Colonel Thierry Burkhard.
