A new strategy to fight armed groups in Africa's Sahel region? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera, 16 Feb 2021

Fighters linked to ISIL and Al Qaeda still hold large swathes of territory.

France is looking to reduce troop numbers, a year after sending extra soldiers to support troops from Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger.

The conflict has killed more than 7,000 people and displaced two million.

After eight years, is it time for a new strategy?
