EU set to overhaul Mali’s military

AFP, BRUSSELS

In February, the EUTM sent a score of officers to Bamako to take stock of the state of the armed forces.

A plan was submitted to the local authorities last month on how to rebuild the army, which will also be drilled in relations with civil society and protection of human rights.

Once trained, each of the four Mali battalions will have a unified command with an infantry mobile core, backed by artillery and engineering, and a logistics component.
