France Africa Security

In this July 27, 2013 file photo, a French soldier stands watch behind Malian soldiers during a visit by the head of France’s Operation Serval and Mali’s army chief of staff to a Malian army base in Kidal, Mali. Eighteen months after France sent troops to Mali for what was meant to be a targeted operation against extremists, they are still there. And instead of leaving, they’re about to expand their mission to fighting terrorism from the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell, File)
