ABU DHABI - French President Francois Hollande said on Tuesday that the deployment of a joint African force to help French troops battle al-Qaida-affiliated militants in Mali could take "a good week."

Speaking from a French military base in Abu Dhabi, Hollande also said French forces in Mali had overnight "made further strikes which hit their targets."

"We will continue the deployment of forces on the ground and in the air," Hollande added.
