法國揮軍馬利 可能引來恐怖攻擊

 French fighter jets have been pummeling the insurgents' desert stronghold in the north of Mali since Jan. 11, determined to shatter the Islamist domination of a region many fear could become a lunch pad for terrorist attacks on the West and a base for coordination with al-Qaida in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.
 Despite a punishing bombardment by French warplanes, al-Qaida-linked insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Jan. 14, seizing a military camp.
 Declaring France had "opened the gates of hell" with its assault, the rebels threatened retribution. The French Embassy in Bamako immediately ordered the evacuation of the roughly 60 French nationals in the Segou region.

 法國戰鬥機自一月十一日起,猛烈轟炸馬利北方的 反叛軍大本營,決心粉碎伊斯蘭激進分子占領地區, 以免成為恐怖主義者攻擊西方世界的跳板,以及與葉 門、索馬利亞、巴基斯坦等地蓋達組織合作的溫床。
 儘管法國戰機猛烈空襲,與蓋達組織勾結的反叛軍 一月十四日依舊在馬利占領更大勢力範圍,並俘虜了 政府軍。
 反叛軍宣稱,法國的攻擊行動已經「打開地獄之門 」,威脅將進行報復。位在馬利首都巴馬科的法國大 使館,立刻下令撤離塞古區約六十名法國公民。
