PARIS (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande will visit Mali on Saturday, his office said.

Hollande, who sent French troops to repel an advance by Islamist rebels in the West African former colony, will be accompanied by his ministers for defense, foreign affairs and development, his office said in a statement that gave no further details.

France's Liberation newspaper reported earlier that Hollande would travel to Mali on Friday night.
