PARIS (AP) - France's defense minister says that Islamist extremists have overrun Diabaly, a small town in central Mali where fighting in the four-day-old offensive continues to rage.
Jean-Yves Le Drian said Monday the rebels "took Diabaly after fierce fighting and resistance from the Malian army that couldn't hold them back."
