Security Council strongly condemns killing of French journalists in Mali.

3 November 2013 – The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned the kidnapping and assassinations of two French journalists in northern Mali, and called on the Government to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Armed gunmen reportedly abducted the two journalists, working for Radio France Internationale (RFI), on Saturday in Kidal.
In a statement to the media late last night, the 15-member Council expressed its condolences to the family of the victims, as well as to the French Government.
“In accordance with international humanitarian law, journalists, media professionals and associated personnel engaged in dangerous professional missions in areas of armed conflict are generally considered as civilians and shall be respected and protected as such,” the statement reiterated.

How independent is the reporting in Mali?

French troops are at war in northern Mali, but it's not clear what is actually happening because journalists have been denied access. For many years, Mali had been a model for press freedom in Africa.
Normally, neither side in a conflict is interested in a neutral coverage of events on the battlefield. Mali is no exception. A journalist wanting to report from the warzone has a tough time of it there.
As Marc Dugge, a radio correspondent for the ARD (Germany's public broadcaster) headed for the warzone, he was stopped 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the front. "We have orders not to let reporters through," a soldier in uniform explained, adding "especially, no whites."

Δούρου: Η επέμβαση στο Μάλι ξυπνά αποικιοκρατικές μνήμες

Αποικιοκρατικές μνήμες ξυπνά η επέμβαση της γαλλικής κυβέρνησης στο Μάλι και τείνει να επιδεινώσει την ένοπλη σύγκρουση στην αφρικανική χώρα, μη δίνοντας λύση στα αδιέξοδα, δήλωσε η Ρένα Δούρου, υπεύθυνη του τομέα Εξωτερικών της Κ.Ο. του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ.
«Η επέμβαση της Γαλλίας εντάσσεται πολύ περισσότερο στη διαπάλη για νέες σφαίρες επιρροής σε μια ήπειρο όπου η έντονη οικονομική παρουσία της Κίνας έχει ενεργοποιήσει τα αποικιοκρατικά αντανακλαστικά των δυτικών πρώην αποικιοκρατικών δυνάμεων, παρά στην έγνοια για τη δημοκρατία, όπως υποστήριξε η γαλλική κυβέρνηση» είπε η κ. Δούρου.

Hollande : "Notre mission au Mali n'est pas achevée"

Face aux risques de représailles terroristes, le plan Vigipirate est renforcé, annonce par ailleurs le chef de l'Etat. Le président François Hollande a annoncé samedi 12 janvier, au lendemain du début de l'intervention militaire française au Mali, un renforcement du plan Vigipirate en France, qui devrait passer prochainement au niveau d'alerte "rouge renforcé".
Dans une brève allocution télévisée à l'issue d'un conseil de défense à l'Elysée, le chef de l'Etat a déclaré que, hormis sur le terrain d'action malien, "la lutte contre le terrorisme exige de prendre toutes les précautions nécessaires ici en France".
Par conséquent, il a été demandé au Premier ministre Jean-Marc Ayrault de renforcer le plan Vigipirate. "Il fera en sorte que ces instructions puissent être exécutées dans les meilleurs délais", a souligné François Hollande.
