Plan for a military intervention in Mali accelerates with the help of France

African and European leaders will meet in Bamako Friday, October 19, 2012, to work on plans for a military intervention to seize back Mali's desert north from armed Islamists who control the region. Rebels from the Al-Qaeda-allied group Ansar Dine (Defenders of the Faith) on Thursday used pickaxes and other tools to destroy Muslin saints' tombs in the ancient city of Timbuktu, their latest attack on its cultural treasures.
Army of Mali must be trained and re-equipped by U.N. international forces to fight against the Islamist groups.
