Video title Koulikoro: Training and Construction - Part 2
Video description

This video was shot at the Koulikoro military training school, 60 kilometres north-east of the capital Bamako on March 27. It shows European Union soldiers learning the use of AK-47s, so they can instruct the first battalion of the Malian army in their use when local soldiers start training in April. The troops are adapting to the dusty, hot conditions. It was -25 degrees Celsius when soldiers from Finland left for Koulikoro, where the daytime temperate hovers around 45 degrees Celsius. Despite the difficulties, construction work has advanced significantly, around a month after it began. The video also contains interviews with the base commander, the commander of the training effort and the Malian commander of the training school.
