A Reaper Drone is pictured at the French Air base detachment on November 23, 2014 in Niamey. French troops intervened in the nearby country, Mali, in January 2013 to chase out hardline Islamists, including Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which had seized control of the country's northern desert cities. This intervention was replaced several months ago by a wider counter-terrorism operation, codenamed Barkhane, in five countries along the southern rim of the Sahara -- Chad, Niger, Mali, Mauritania and Burkina Faso.
