Russian Mercenaries Headed to Mali?

 Reuters published on 13 September 2021 an article titled "Deal Allowing Russian Mercenaries into Mali Is Close - Sources" by John Irish and David Lewis.  

A deal is close that would permit Russian mercenaries known as the Wagner Group to operate in Mali.  They would train Malian military and provide protection for senior officers.  France opposes the deal.
