France ends decade-long Operation Barkhane in Sahel region • FRANCE 24 English

France announces the end of Operation Barkhane. A decade of fighting in Africa’s troubled Sahel region has seen over 2,000 jihadist fighters killed, but despite the French military intervention, violence continues. Also, protesters voice their opposition to Uganda’s pipeline project that will see drilling take place within the country’s largest national park. Finally, Burundi reopens its border with neighbouring Rwanda after seven years of closure.
