French citizen Nicole Obre Toure carries a bag to her car as she prepares to leave the region where she has lived for 12 years, in Segou, central Mali, Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. As Islamist militants gained ground Monday morning, Toure decided to move from the village where she lives into Segou, the regional capital. Once there, however, she learned that the French government had ordered the immediate evacuation of French citizens from the area. Despite intensive aerial bombardments by French warplanes, Islamist insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali Monday and moved closer to the capital, French and Malian authorities said.
