Malian soldiers entered the city of Timbuktu on Monday after al-Qaeda-linked militants, having set ablaze a library that held thousands of ancient manuscripts, fled into the desert.
Burned-out vehicles and scattered bullets dotted the streets of a central Malian town after radical Islamists retreated following days of French airstrikes, according to video obtained Sunday.
France sent weapons this month to Libyan civilians under siege by Col. Moammar Gadhafi's forces, a military spokesman said Wednesday, making it the first NATO country to announce it has armed rebel fighters.
French fighter jets struck an air base deep inside Libya and shot down one of Col. Moammar Gadhafi's planes, officials said Thursday, and NATO ships patrolled the coast to block the flow of arms and mercenaries. Other coalition bombers struck artillery, arms depots and parked helicopters, officials said.
The France military spokesman, Col. Thierry Burkhard, said the French soldier was wounded but that his life was not in danger.
French army Col. Thierry Burkhard confirmed that the airport was taken overnight and described the operation in Kidal itself as "ongoing."
