Jean-Yves Le Drian said they had been killed in airstrikes and direct combat with French troops.

The militants died in French airstrikes on vehicles carrying fighters and materials, or in ground fighting in the town of Konna at the start of the campaign and later in the town of Gao, Mr Le Drian said.
