Armed teams there proceed to wage struggle, regardless of years of French army operations.

There is anger in opposition to France in West Africa at what protesters say is the flawed relationship between French armed forces and their African allies.

Two individuals have been killed and others injured in Niger final month when demonstrators tried to dam a army provide convoy of greater than 100 autos on its solution to Mali.

Protest organisers complain native forces are under-equipped and struggling disproportionate losses in contrast with their French allies in frequent assaults by armed teams.

Protesters say these teams, typically linked to the ISIL (ISIS) group and al-Qaeda, proceed to function regardless of years of French army operations.

Has the army mission failed?
