THE DEBATE

Latest update : 2013-01-16

French intervention in Mali

French jets are pounding positions in the north as they try to prevent jihadists from advancing on Bamako. More help is on the way, with soldiers from across West Africa due to arrive within days while France itself is to triple the number of its own troops. Laura Baines and her panel discuss whether France has committed itself to a long and difficult campaign in Africa.
