      France to Withdraw Troops from Mali in March


      France plans to start withdrawing its troops from Mali in March and focus on fighting Islamist rebel groups in the north of the country, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday.

      “I believe that beginning in March, if all goes as planned, the number of French soldiers in Mali will be significantly reduced,” Fabius told a French newspaper.
