France to scale down West Africa counter-terrorism operations

@EmmanuelMacron
France is to scale down counter-terrorism operations in the Sahel region of West Africa after eight years.
 
This was informed by French President Emmanuel Macron.
 
He announced, the existing 5,100-strong task force will be incorporated into a broader international mission.
 
French forces have been operating in Mali, Chad, Mauritania, Niger, and Burkina Faso to fight militants.
 
Last week, France paused operations in Mali following a military coup.
 
Militants linked to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS) group have strengthened their grip on the region, which has become a front line in the war against Islamist extremism.
 
It is also a major transit route for illegal drugs, weapons and jihadists.
