Niger: France Reportedly Orders Forces To Uranium Sites

The source confirmed a report in Le Point weekly that special forces would be sent to uranium production sites in Imouraren and Arlit. Defense officials and Areva representatives did not comment. Al Qaeda elements in Mali have threatened Paris' interests enough for it to take the lead in driving out the militants.
