By John Irish PARIS (Reuters) - France will not play Africa's policeman and sort out a territorial dispute in Mali, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Thursday, a day after Mali's president and Tuareg separatist rebels both criticised Paris for doing too little. After winning adulation across its former colony for a 5-month military offensive earlier this year that scattered al Qaeda fighters, France is caught in a tug of war between the government in Bamako and Tuareg MNLA rebels in the north, who are demanding some form of autonomy. Now it's up to Malians, and particularly President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, to act," Fabius told RMC radio. "France doesn't support any group, but it's normal that territorial integrity is restored.

Women with ovarian cancer have a 31% chance of surviving another five years if they live in Britain or Ireland.

By Padraic Halpin DUBLIN (Reuters) - Bank of Ireland (BoI) raised 580 million euros ($788 million) through a share sale as part of a milestone deal to repay 1.9 billion euros to the state, handing the government a timely financial boost. The redemption of preference shares issued when the part state-owned lender was rescued in 2009 cuts its reliance on the government less than two weeks before Ireland is set to become the first euro zone country to exit an EU/IMF bailout. The announcement comes after Reuters cited a source familiar with the deal as saying Bank of Ireland would raise between 500 and 600 million euros of new equity as early as this week and would repay the rest through issuing debt. The deal also follows a steady stream of more positive economic news in Ireland, including the fastest fall in unemployment in four years, that convinced Dublin to make a clean break from its bailout programme.
