French forces mark anniversary of Timbuktu liberation by liberating it again

This was the story from Timbuktu a year ago. Euphoria and jubilation as the forces of Hollande the Conqueror rout the forces of darkness from Timbuktu.

This is the story a year later from France 24;

Eleven Islamists fighters were killed and one French soldier was wounded in the latest military operation against militants in Mali’s turbulent desert north, according to security sources.

“The French military operation in the vicinity of Timbuktu has finished. Eleven terrorists were killed, one French soldier was injured, but his life is not in danger,” a French official told the AFP news agency.

No mention of euphoria or jubilation this time round.
