Senegal has decided to send 500 soldiers to Mali after ECOWAS announced Saturday its authorization of the deployment of an African-led international force to flush out rebel groups from northern Mali, according to the Senegal Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye.

President Macky Sall "has decided to send a battalion of 500 soldiers," said the minister.

Although the troops are not yet on the ground, but they will be there "in a matter of days," he said.
