US mulls aid to French in Mali, including drones

US mulls aid to French in Mali, including drones 12 Jan 2013 The US military is weighing support for French forces in Mali including surveillance drones, a US official said Friday, as Washington backed moves to deny safe haven to 'extremists' in the country. US commanders were looking at providing intelligence and aerial refueling tankers among a range of options, such as logistical backup and boosting intelligence sharing, which would involve surveillance drones, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP. Senior US officials held talks with their counterparts in the French capital and other allies on drawing up an action plan, the official said.
