Support for Intervention
Yacouba Konate, 56, wears a French flag to show his support for the French military intervention in the capital Bamako. France has sent hundreds of troops into the capital and carried out more air raids on Jan. 14 in the desert area seized last year by an al-Qaida-linked rebel group allied with Mali-based militant groups.
