BBC News - 14 January 2013

A headline from 14 January, early in the day, 'France upbeat on Mali military campaign', has been removed entirely from the BBC website. The report, revised seemingly with updated information, now appears under the headline 'Mali Islamists seize town amid French intervention'.

The original headline reveals a somewhat gung-ho attitude on the part of the BBC in relation to France's military bombardment of Mali. France's mood seems a curious aspect to emphasise, given that the reality of the situation involved the bombing of another country.
