I haven’t seen any reports of the French Foreign Legion being involved in Mali but the idea of the FFL marching into Timbuktu is the kind of stuff that makes historians all tingly.

Aljazeera (English) reporting French Foreign Legion Paratroopers jumped into a residential area of Timbuktu and will link up with other French Infantry (Marines?) as well as Malian troops currently deployed and deploying at airport.
The soldier wearing the Call of Duty mask was reported to be a Legionnaire.

The History Channel could get at least 10 episodes out of it.
