French commandos and Malian forces began a "reconnaissance and control operation" in the Akabar region on the 28 March, working in liaison with the Nigerian army and a local self-defence group. On the 1st  April, they were bumped by the Jihadists estimated to number around 60 idiots, around 90 kilometres south of Menaka and three kilometres from the Nigerian border.Whilst Malian forces sustained "losses" there were no French casualties.
