Hague said Monday that he made the trip, the first for a British foreign secretary, to discuss the steps needed to ensure Mali's return to a stable democracy.

The government of Chad said al-Qaida leader Mokhtar Belmokhtar died after a weekend raid on a terrorist base in northeastern Mali, The New York Times reported. Chad is among the African countries supporting multilateral military operations in Mali.
Belmokhtar was the alleged mastermind behind a January attack on a natural gas facility in Algeria. The attack was said to be in response to Algeria's decision to let French forces use its airspace to launch its military intervention in Mali.
