PARIS (AP) - French President Francois Hollande says his goal is to free all of Mali of "terrorists."

Hollande's comments came the same day French and Malian forces regained control of the strategic northern city of Gao. On Sunday, Islamic fighters invaded the heart of the city.

The dramatic attack was repulsed overnight but highlights the challenges ahead for the Malian and French forces, who initially drove the militants from Gao with little resistance.

Hollande said Monday his goal is that "not one space of Mali's territory be under the control of terrorists."
