France army in key Mali withdrawal

“France has begun a key stage of its military withdrawal from Mali, four months after sending troops to push Islamist rebels out the north. A convoy of dozens of lorries left a base outside the capital, Bamako, on its way south to Ivory Coast. France began withdrawing some of its 4,000 troops from the country in April. They plan to gradually hand over to the Malian army and a UN peacekeeping force, which will deploy in July ahead of planned nationwide elections.”
