Malian authorities are set to give French President François Hollande a new camel after the first one he was given as thanks for Frances military intervention in Mali was killed and eaten by the family who was meant to look after it in Timbuktu.
France 24 (h/t Frederic F) Malian authorities are set to give the French leader an even better dromedary to replace the one that was devoured. As soon as we heard of this, we quickly replaced it with a bigger and better-looking camel, said a local government official, quoted by the Reuters news agency. The new camel will be sent to Paris. We are ashamed of what happened to the camel. It was a present that did not deserve this fate.
