Mali: France imposes news blackout as French bodies pile up!
France has reportedly imposed a media blackout on its invasion of Mali amid a growing war that rages on in the West African nation.
On January 11, France launched the war under the pretext of halting the advance of fighters in Mali. However, as Paris has stepped up its ground offensive and aerial strikes in Mali few images of the conflict have come out of the African country.
French networks TF1 and France Televisions have also sent several teams to Bamako, but a media blackout on images of the clashes has confined all journalists to the city.
