West African soldiers from Togo arrive at Bamako's airport Thursday Jan. 17, 2013. They were the first contingent of West African troops brought to Mali to help French and government forces fight jihadist insurgents in control of the north of the country. Fighting raged in one Mali town, airstrikes hit another and army troops raced to protect a third, on the seventh day of the French-led military intervention to wrest back Mali's north from al Qaida-linked groups.
