A new strategy to fight armed groups in Africa's Sahel region?

The campaign against armed groups in the Sahel in Africa is making little progress.

Fighters linked to ISIL and Al Qaeda still hold large swathes of territory.

France is looking to reduce troop numbers, a year after sending extra soldiers to support troops from Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger.

The conflict has killed more than 7,000 people and displaced two million.

After eight years, is it time for a new strategy?
