Abu Zeid Killed

The Mali operation continues to go France's way. Abu Zeid, the leader of Al Qaeda in the Maghreb, was apparently killed by French forces in recent days, along with 43 of his men.

François Hollande is no doubt grateful for the news, since he hasn't been faring as well on the domestic front. Still, the political "bounce" from the African intervention seems limited.
