Liberals push end of Mali peacekeeping mission to August

The military's peacekeeping mission in Mali is going to last a little longer than previously planned — but not as long as the United Nations had hoped. Canada's operations in the African nation were supposed to cease at the end of July when the eight helicopters and 250 military personnel were to come home. The UN had asked Canada to stay until October when Romanian troops take over to minimize a gap in providing lifesaving medical evacuations for injured UN peacekeepers.
