    After stopping in Timbuktu, French President Francois Hollande visited Mali's capital, Bamako, where he held formal talks with his Malian counterpart Dioncounda Traore on the eventual hand-over of the French operation to a UN-backed African force.

    In a press conference addressing the Malian people with President Traore, Hollande said "terrorism has been repelled but not wiped out".
