DW correspondent Fanny Facsar met with a former jihadist in Mali, who explains why he thinks the Malian government cannot win the war on terror.
The two helicopters collided during an operation against militants in Mali's restive northern region. Jihadists have intensified their attacks in recent weeks despite efforts to rein in terrorism in the country.
Barrages of rockets were fired towards southern Israel from Gaza, shortly after the Islamic Jihad group confirmed the death of Bahaa Abu el-Atta. Air-raid sirens sounded in Tel Aviv. Germany condemned the rocket fire.
Militants deemed jihadis by the Malian government have attacked armed forces on patrol duty. It was the second mass attack this month in the country, which has witnessed a surge in violence.
A suspected terror attack has killed more than 50 people in Mali, in one of the deadliest strikes against the country's military in years. The "Islamic State" group later claimed responsibility.
