France Claims Two Terror Chiefs Killed In Sahel Region During Raid

145 20.05.2015 Инфо

A defense ministry statement said on Wednesday, French special forces have killed two key members of an Islamist militant group.
The statement described the two as "important terrorist chiefs" naming them as Amada Ag Hama and Ibrahim Ag Inawalen.
They were among four killed during an operation on the night of May 17 and 18 in Africa's Sahel region.
The belt region cuts across Africa from Mali to Sudan, separating the Sahara Desert and southern Savannah plains.
France's intervention against Islamists in Mali in 2013 has mutated into a broader, regional mission to hunt down Islamists across the Sahel.
