Man accused of plotting possible attack on French President Emmanuel Macron

"We can not hide behind words, and must take actions", he said. It comes to support other forces, " Macron said.

Mr Macron also said he would limit the number of times that MPs could be re-elected so that "parliamentarians see in their terms of office a chance to make our country advance and not the key to a life-long career". It's all been said in the past. "It's all been said in previous videos I've made", McGown says, according to a transcription by SITE.

The video was published as the recently elected French leader arrived in the West African country for an anti-terror summit.

It is a reminder that al-Qaeda affiliates remain the main jihadist threat across the region.

In parliamentary elections held afterwards his year-old party won a resounding majority, scooping up votes from the traditional right and left.

Dr Elliott and his wife Jocelyn, both in their eighties, were seized in the north of the country, near the Mali and Niger borders previous year, where they had lived for more than four decades and ran a medical clinic.

The release of the video came after Sweden's government announced last week the freeing of hostage Johan Gustafsson, who was kidnapped alongside McGowan as they sat in a restaurant in Timbuktu. Elliott was abducted in January 2015 in Djibo, Burkina Faso, where he and his wife had run the district's sole medical clinic since 1972.

Glitterati as Messi finally marries childhood sweetheart
Despite spending more than half of his life in Barcelona, Dominguez says he isn't surprised Messi chose to return home to marry. The civil wedding ceremony and party were all slated to take place inside the venue, and the guests will be lodged there too.

"If you want to be efficient you also have to address that issue".

The video shows six foreigners from six different countries including a South American nun and a woman from France.

France intervened to chase out militants linked to Al-Qaeda who had overtaken key northern cities in Mali in 2013. The video claimed that "no genuine negotiations have begun to rescue your children".

However, a new security law will accompany this waiver, the French president added.

The new antiterrorism force will operate in the region along with 12,000 United Nations peacekeepers in Mali, one of the most risky peacekeeping missions in the world, and an existing French force of 5,000, the country's largest overseas mission. France's support will be via "advice, material and combat", he said. France has since kept about 4,000 soldiers in the region to hunt down militants, while the United Nations has more than 13,000 peacekeepers in Mali.

Last month, five people - a Portuguese soldier, a Malian soldier, a Malian woman working for the European Union mission and civilians from China and Gabon - were killed when gunmen from an al-Qaeda-linked group stormed a tourist resort near the capital Bamako.
