Mali conflict: BBC sees aftermath of fighting in Konna
French-led troops in Mali have taken control of the northern town of Gao, the French defence ministry has said.
The town was previously a stronghold of Islamist fighters after it was seized by an alliance of Tuareg rebels and Islamists last April.
There has also been fighting in the central town of Konna - the BBC's Mark Doyle is there.
