UNSC Approves Troops to Mali

The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved a plan to send troops into Mali.

A force of thirty-three hundred, African troops, was approved under the plan.

Their mission will be to stabilize the country and remove Al Qaeda linked groups, who've taken over most of the country.

They will also seek to establish peace talks with other rebel groups, who are not linked to the terrorist group.

The troops are not expected to be ready until September of 2013, bringing doubt to whether or not the mission will have any success, as by then the entire nation may have fallen.
