Mali conflict: BBC sees aftermath of fighting in Konna

French-led troops in Mali have taken control of the northern town of Gao, the French defence ministry has said.

The town was previously a stronghold of Islamist fighters after it was seized by an alliance of Tuareg rebels and Islamists last April.

There has also been fighting in the central town of Konna - the BBC's Mark Doyle is there.
