Paris (CNN) France is to end its years-long anti-terror mission targeting Islamists in the Sahel region of West Africa, French President Emmanuel Macron announced Thursday. However, the mission, known as Operation Barkhane, will be replaced by a more international effort, Macron told a press conference ahead of the G7 summit. France currently has 5,100 troops in the region in connection with Operation Barkhane, operating across Chad, Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Burkina Faso, according to the French Ministry of Defense. Meanwhile, in France, Operation Barkhane is increasingly seen as a long-running drain on resources with no clear end in sight. Macron said France would now consult with its American and European partners and initiate a "profound transformation" of the French military presence in the Sahel.

London (CNN) Britain has agreed to a prisoner transfer of ex-Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadžić, convicted of the Srebrenica genocide, to a UK prison to serve the rest of his sentence, a statement from the British Foreign Office said on Wednesday. "Radovan Karadžić is one of the few people to have been found guilty of genocide," said UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in the statement. "He was responsible for the massacre of men, women and children at the Srebrenica genocide and helped prosecute the siege of Sarajevo with its remorseless attacks on civilians. "We should take pride in the fact that, from UK support to secure his arrest, to the prison cell he now faces, Britain has supported the 30-year pursuit of justice for these heinous crimes," he added. Karadžić, whose Interpol charges listed "flamboyant behavior" as a distinguishing characteristic, was a practicing psychiatrist who came to be nicknamed the "Butcher of Bosnia."

(CNN) The United Kingdom and the European Union have warned a no-deal Brexit was now likely, even as they agreed -- once again -- to extend trade talks beyond a self-imposed Sunday deadline. were The talkswere initially extended until Sunday after Wednesday's meeting between European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, billed as a "last-ditch effort," ended without an agreement. Speaking in London, Johnson said the two sides remain "far apart on key issues," and warned that "the most likely thing now is we have to get ready for WTO terms, Australia terms," he warned. Australia doesn't have a free trade agreement with the European Union, even though talks to secure one are in progress. The expression "Australia terms" has been widely used by Johnson and his government as an euphemism for a no-deal Brexit.
