French troops take Mali airport

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The French army released video footage on Friday (February 8) showing its troops taking the airport in the northern village of Tessalit as part of their ongoing campaign against Islamist rebels in the country. The special forces parachuted in to seize the desert town, about 50 km (30 miles) as the crow flies from the Algerian frontier. This was the northernmost town reached so far by the French.
