C'est très difficile de savoir comment se déroulent les combats que vous venez d'évoquer.
It is very difficult to know how the fights you've just mentioned are going.
Effectivement les autorités maliennes parlent de combat au corps à corps.
Indeed, the Malian authorities talk about hand-to-hand fighting.
C'est une expression probablement un petit peu exagérée.
It is probably a slightly exaggerated expression.
C'est vrai que les troupes françaises et les troupes maliennes sont côte à côte et au contact face à l'insurrection islamiste, dans cette région de Djibali les combats durent depuis plus de trois jours maintenant.
It is true that the French troops and the Malian troops are side by side and in contact in front of the Islamist insurrection, in this region of Djibali where fights have been lasting for more than three days now.
L'endroit nous nous trouvons est à plusieurs dizaines de kilomètres du lieu des combats, l'armée française fait monter progressivement depuis le nord - depuis le sud du pays, depuis Tombouctou, des colonnes de soldats qui étaient en réserve sur l'aéroport et dans le centre de la capitale malienne ces derniers jours.
The place where we stand is several tens of kilometers away from the location of the fights, where the French army is progressively moving up from the North - from the South (correction], from Tombouctou, columns of soldiers who were in reserve at the airport and in the centre of the Malian capital these last days.
C'est une montée très progressive, très lente, qui vise à renforcer les unités qui sont déjà au combat dans la région de Djibali.
It is a very progressive [], very slow, which aims at reinforcing the units that are already in the fight, in the Djibali region.
Alors Mathieu, juste derrière vous, des troupes françaises : comment ça s'organise ?
So Mathieu, just behind you, French troops: how are things being organised?
Ecoutez, il est très difficile d'avoir des informations précises.
Listen, it is very difficult to have precise information.
L'armée française est très discrète et on le comprend.
The French army is very discrete and we understand it.
Elle découvre le terrain, elle vit ici ses premières heures sur un terrain sur lequel elle sait qu'elle va devoir engager un combat Et en même temps l'armée française n'est pas chez elle ici, elle n'agit qu'en soutien de l'armée malienne.
It is discovering the ground, it is living here its first hours on a ground on which it knows that it will have to engage into combat. And at the same time, the French army isn't at home here, it is only acting in support of the Malian army.
Nos interlocuteurs sont donc des militaires maliens qui, encore une fois, font preuve d'une très grande discrétion.
Our interlocutors are therefore Malian militarymen who, once again, are showing great discretion.
Il y a un danger majeur ici, c'est le danger de l'imbrication entre les islamistes, entre les milices islamistes qui sillonent le pays y compris dans la moitié ouest du pays, se déroulent les combats au moment je vous parle.
There is a major danger here, it is the danger of imbrication between islamists, between islamist militias that are wandering around the country including in the Western half of the country, where fightings are happening at this very moment.
Ce risque d'imbrication et de confrontation imprévu, inopiné, force les autorités maliennes et les autorités françaises, les militaires français, à être extrêmement discret sur leur programme, et sur leurs manoeuvres.
This risk of unpredicted, [] imbrication and confrontation obliges the Malian authorities and the French authorities, the French military, to be extremely discrete on their programme, on their maneuvers.
Mathieu, vous avez croisé des Maliens au cours de votre périple au Mali : comment réagissent-ils?
Mathieu, you have met Malians during your journey in Mali: how do they react?
Ecoutez, les Maliens que nous avons croisés réagissent de manière extrêmement favorable.
Listen, the Malians we have met react in an extremely favourable way.
Les rues des villages, les rues des villes - nous arrivons de Ségou nous étions ce matin à San et à Sévaré - toutes ces villes sont pavoisées aux couleurs du drapeau français et du drapeau malien.
Villages' streets, cities' streets - we've just arrive from Segou where we were this morning, in San and Sevare - all these cities are covered with the colors of the French flag and the Malian flag.
La population ici a l'impression d'avoir échappé au pire.
The population here is under the impression that it has avoided the worst.
Le récit des villes qui étaient occupées jusqu'à présent par les islamistes dans le nord du pays - ne citons que Tombouctou ou Gao - terrifiait littéralement la population dans le sud du pays, qui s'attendait à un moment ou à un autre à voir arriver une milice islamiste qui leur imposerait leur Sharia, cette Sharia si propre à Ansar Eddine, ces groupes radicaux qui rendent la vie des populations absolument impossible.
The stories of these cities that have been occupied until now by the Islamists in the North of the country - let us mention Tombouctou or Gao only - litteraly terrified the population in the South of the country, which expected to see an Islamist militia arriving anytime, which would impose on them their Sharia, this Sharia so specific to Ansar Eddine, these radical groups that make the populations' lives impossible.
Donc ce sentiment de soulagement est partagé par au moins toute la moitié sud du pays la quasi-totalité des individus que nous avons croisés.
So this feeling of relief is shared by at least the whole Southern half of the country, the near-entirety of the individuals we have met.
