FILE- In file photo taken on Thursday, Feb.14, 2013, a French soldier checks female passengers of a transport truck arriving in Gao, northern Mali. Youth in the recently-liberated Malian city of Gao held a sit-in in the center of the city on Thursday, May 30, 2013, to protest against what they see as France's tacit support of the Tuareg ethnic group, the first indication that the mood toward the French in Mali is changing. Gao was the first city where Islamic extremists were pushed out by French forces in January, and is now where the population is staging the first act of protest against the French.
