An Air-Protection detachment from the French Air Forces attends the arrival of French Prime Minister Manuel Valls at the Air Base 101 for a visit to the French Air Forces detachment (DETAIR) on November 23, 2014 in Niamey as part of a two-day regional visit, in a show of support for a French-led anti-jihadist force. French troops intervened in the nearby country, Mali, in January 2013 to chase out hardline Islamists, including Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which had seized control of the country's northern desert cities. This intervention was replaced several months ago by a wider counter-terrorism operation, codenamed Barkhane, in five countries along the southern rim of the Sahara -- Chad, Niger, Mali, Mauritania and Burkina Faso.

TOPSHOTS Burj Khalifa (C), the world's tallest tower, is seen engulfed with fog as it stands behind a traditional mosque in the early hours of the morning, in Dubai on November 25, 2013. The Emirati city is competing with Brazil's Sao Paulo, the Turkish city of Izmir and Ekaterinburg in Russia to host the Universal Exposition in 2020 according to the International Exhibitions Bureau (BIE), which oversees the organisation of these large-scale events. Dubai could present a "positive" image of tolerance in a region rocked by turmoil if it wins a bid to host the six months event, UAE Minister of State Reem al-Hashimy said.
