29/01/2013France wants international observers in Mali

France supports the swift deployment of an international observation mission to monitor human rights abuses in Mali, Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Tuesday.

Paris is in favour of "the rapid deployment of international observers who would ensure that human rights are respected," Ayrault said after a parliamentary meeting.

He said such a mission would comply with the UN Security Council resolution that authorised the deployment of an African force to help Mali's interim authorities wrest back control of the country's northern half.

France short-circuited a sluggish UN diplomatic process when it launched a surprise military intervention on January 11, quickly forcing Islamists to retreat and conquering the north's main cities.

Rights groups have voiced fears of widespread abuses and reprisals against Tuaregs and Arabs after reports of killings by Malian government forces.
