French President Emmanuel Macron, in a September 22 UN General Assembly (UNGA) speech, made continued French military involvement contingent upon Mali’s restoration of civilian rule. He was blunt: “They (the junta) must put Mali on the irreversible path of returning to civilian power and organize rapid elections.” And, “France […] can only remain engaged on this condition.” As he has in the past, Macron was also clear that France has a low tolerance level for popular demonstrations against...

But after 30 years since their last...

Third-placed RB Leipzig scored two quick-fire goals through Dani Olmo on the way to a 2-0 victory on the road in the Bundesliga on Friday.
