Mali: Militants Killed in Anti-Terror Operation

25 JANUARY 2014

A French counter-terrorism operation in northern Mali has killed 11 Islamist militants and left a French soldier wounded.

An official from France’s Operation Serval military mission told news agency AFP the operation took place in Mali’s Timbuktu region, adding the wounded soldier’s life is not in danger.

Malian military and foreign sources said the troops were targeting the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (JUJAO); the Signatories in Blood, an armed unit founded by fugitive jihadist commander Mokhtar Belmokhtar; and fighters loyal to slain warlord Abdelhamid Abou Zeid, who was killed in February last year.
