French military denies injuring protesters in Burkina Faso
KAYA, Burkina Faso (AP) — The French military has denied injuring civilians in Burkina Faso when firing warning shots to disperse protesters who had blocked one of its military convoys.

in Bamako, the Malian capital, everyone knows the fate of the risk of Reserve the counter-terrorist war in the military and their families. The documentary The sacrifices of the Sahel, realized by the journalists Peggy Bruguière and Marlène Rabaud gives them the floor. The rare words of soldiers and widows, combined with those of other sacrifices - inhabitants attacked by the armed groups, alert launchers having denounced the shortcomings of the State -, weave a canvas which, in its heart, allows to grasp the roots of this war that continues to expand. And this, despite international military interventions: five, since the beginning of the conflict in 2012.

"Diversion is the cause of this macabre disaster," regrets Modibo, whose face is blurred.Terrible Daily
After hearing it tell the terrible daily of the front - seven weapons for twenty men, the lack of ammunition and predatory practices of its hierarchy - we wonder what has become Modibo. This filming, poorly welcomed by the Malian staff, did he earned his reprisals, like Moussa?

if it suffers from a few shortcomings of context, the sacrifices of the Sahel benefits from the lighting of a good cast of field researchers detailing with pedagogy the fundamentals of the conflicts that undermine Mali. Neither the military hierarchy nor the junta in power, since the double coup of 18 August 2020 and May 24 2021, will bring their version of the events, despite the solicitations of the realizers.
Because, if the junta has multiplied the promises of fighting corruption in recent months, "a deaf groove has spread into the barracks and putschists want it invisible," says the voice off. A law of silence which, in Mali, makes the testimonies of those who dare to braver, as in this documentary.
The sacrifices of the Sahel, documentary of Peggy Bruguière and Marlène Rabaud (Fr., 2021, 52 min). Broadcast as part of the "debate" show and available on LCP-AN.
