Parisians line up to mourn 13 soldiers killed in Mali

Hundreds of Parisians lined the streets of Paris on Monday to pay their respects to 13 French soldiers killed in Mali last week as hearses bearing their flag-draped coffins crossed the heart of the city. It was the biggest loss of French troops in a single day since an attack in Beirut 36 years ago when 58 soldiers died. The deaths in Mali highlight the human cost to France of leading a six-year counter-insurgency campaign in West Africa.
