Meet the French troops hunting jihadists in Sahel

 

2015-08-28 By Luke BROWN , Julie DUNGELHOEFF – France24

 

FRANCE 24's reporters take you to crossroads in the African desert where the trafficking of drugs, people and contraband meets Islamist terrorism.

 

FRANCE 24 has been embedded with French troops carrying out Operation Barkhane, which was launched in August 2014. Three thousand French soldiers have been deployed across five African countries: Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Chad.

 

Their mission is clear: stop the terrorists. But carrying it out is a difficult and dangerous task.
