French troops bombarded Islamist sites in Kidal and Tessalit in northern Mali overnight from yesterday into today, according to a defence official today who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to be quoted by the media.
The official said "(the strikes) were targeting logistical arms and fuel depots near the Algerian border."
He could not confirm that the latest attacks also targeted armed Islamist training camps.
