United Nations peacekeepers may be deployed to Mali after French troops leave to ensure that Islamist militants don't seek to reclaim the northern part of the country, according to UN officials.

The UN Security Council in New York will discuss in coming days whether to send as many as 5,000 troops to protect civilians and keep the land-locked West African country stable before peace talks and an election.
