MOSCOW (Sputnik) - A French soldier has been killed in clashes with terrorists in Mali, media outlets reported.
Commenting on the incident, the Elysee Palace pointed out the French determination to fight terrorism, Agence France-Presse reported late Friday.
Further details of the incident remain unknown.
France has been conducting "Operation Barkhane" against terrorist groups in the Sahel region – Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger – since 1 August 2014.
The situation in Mali became destabilised in 2012 when Tuareg militants seized vast territories in the northern part of the country. The conflict escalated even more over the activities of Islamists, forces loyal to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi as well as French interference.
