Mali: Troops Battle Insurgents In Timbuktu

Malian soldiers backed by French fighter jets clashed with Islamist militants in Timbuktu after militants used a car bomb to cover their overnight incursion into the city, sources said March 31, Reuters reported. African troops are preparing to assume the main security responsibilities on the ground as French forces work to degrade the militants' fighting capabilities as much as possible before they withdraw from Mali.
