Wednesday, representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will arrive in Cairo to enter into new rounds of negotiations, regarding a proposed $4bn loan to the country.

Why is France in Mali?

Mud Mosque in Timbuktu

We have seen from a variety of news sources lately that France has deployed troops to the West African country of Mali to help fight radical Islamists, including a few branches of Al-Qaeda, who have taken over the north of the country.  Why is France doing this? The area of land that is now present-day Mali was home to a series of advanced Muslim empires (such as the Ghana Empire and the Mali Empire) back when the Sahara Desert had not yet encroached as far south as it is currently.  There are precious historical edifices that remain in Timbuktu, a…
