TIMBUKTU, Mali - French President Francois Hollande arrived in Mali on Saturday on a one-day visit to support French troops fighting a campaign against Islamist rebels in the Sahel nation.

Hollande, accompanied by his ministers for defense, foreign affairs and development, flew into Sevare in central Mali and was due to go on to Timbuktu, the famed Saharan trading town which was recaptured from the rebels on Sunday, French TV channels said.

The French leader was expected to outline the next phase of the mission for the French forces, which in a three-week campaign have pushed the rebels back into the desert and mountains of northeast Mali.
