France says struck Mali rebel positions around Gao

PARIS (Reuters) - French forces struck Islamist rebel positions around the northern Malian town of Gao on Sunday using four Rafale fighter jets deployed from France, the French defence ministry said, confirming earlier reports from residents.

The strikes hit rebel training camps, logistics depots and infrastructure, the ministry said in a statement.
