WASHINGTON, Jan 17 (Reuters) - The United States has agreed to a French request for airlift capacity to help France move its troops and equipment to Mali, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

The U.S. decision, while widely expected, comes after an Obama administration legal review to decide what assistance Washington could provide to France, which last week began a military operation against Islamist militants in Mali.
