Issued on: Modified:
In northern Mali, French troops are continuing their mission in the Ifoghas mountain range, a haven for Islamist terrorists in the region. It's been six months since France launched its military intervention and it's that time of year where soldiers are also having to deal with unbearable heat. However, they have to get on with the job, looking for and destroying hidden arms stores.
