French forces take airport, bridge in Gao, Mali

Published: 01.26.13, 16:08 / Israel News

French forces have taken control of the airport and a key bridge in the radical Islamist stronghold of Gao, the French defense minister said Saturday, marking a significant inroad into the heart of territory held by the al-Qaida-linked extremists.

 

The move comes just two weeks after France launched its military offensive to rout the Islamists from power in northern Mali. It is unclear what kind of resistance they will face in the coming days. (AP)
