'Mali Mess a Consequence of Libya Revolution Funded by the French' .

French troops have fought their first face-to-face battle with Islamic insurgents in Mali. The ground operation comes after five days of intense air attacks there. The army is aiming to prevent the Al-Qaeda affiliated militants, who've seized vast areas in the north of the former French colony, from moving towards the capital Bamako. But the operation has apparently led to the first retaliation. Mali militants have raided a BP gas field in neighboring Algeria, killing two people and kidnapping a group of around forty European and Japanese workers. For more on the French combat mission and its consequences, RT talks to Ludovic De Danne, spokesperson for Marine Le Pen, President of the National Front.
