Francois Hollande's camel: Mali 'to replace eaten animal'
An officials says Mali is to send the French president a replacement camel after the first, given to him as a gift for helping to oust Islamist rebels, was eaten, Reuters reports.
Francois Hollande had left the creature with a family in Timbuktu for safekeeping, after it was presented to him by local residents in February.
These pictures, from February, show Mr Hollande arriving in Mali and being presented with the camel.
