From Ali, Turkey correspondent: ""In Gao, a dusty town on the banks of the Niger river where Islamists have imposed an extreme form of sharia law, residents said French jets pounded the airport and rebel positions". Extreme form? They supported Al Qaeda in Syria who are beheading, torturing, kidnapping... So what do they mean with "extreme"? From same reporting "“The planes are so fast you can only hear their sound in the sky,” resident Soumaila Maiga said by telephone. “We are happy, even though it is frightening. Soon we will be delivered.”"
