Mali declares state of emergency

Mali declares state of emergency because the Islamists have taken over the Nothern Mali and mechanism is being put in place to recover the Northern Mali from them. French troops have arrived Mali as revealed by President Francois Hollande.

French troops will help Malian forces prepare for a counter-offensive against the Islamists in Konna. Late on Thursday, an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called for the rapid deployment of an African-led force.
