    Campaigning for the presidential election at the end of the month has begun in Mali. Twenty eight candidates are trying to persuade voters that they are the best person for the job.

    It is hoped that the elections will draw a line under a turbulent 18 months that saw Al Qaeda militants seize the north of the country and then a French military assault on the Islamists in January.
