French seize control of key Mali town of Diabaly

French troops took control Monday of the Malian town of Diabaly, patrolling the streets in armored personnel carriers and inspecting the charred remains of a pickup truck with mounted machine gun left behind by the fleeing militants.

 

The armed Islamist fighters seized Diabaly a week ago but left after days of being pounded by French airstrikes, marking the first tangible victory by the French intervention forces. (AP)
