Mali Al Qaidas Sahara Playbook

Mali Al Qaidas Sahara Playbook

In this Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013 photo, neighborhood resident Mohamed Alassane stands in a room where he and other residents say al Qaida held European hostages, at the Ministry of Finance's Regional Audit Department, in Timbuktu, Mali. Alassane and a doctor from the local hospital said the wheelchair had been used by an injured Islamist. In the same building, occupied by Islamists for more than a year, the AP found a more than 10-page letter signed by Abdelmalek Droukdel, the senior commander appointed by Osama bin Laden to run al-Qaida's branch in Africa. The confidential letter from the terror leader spelled out the terror network's blueprint for conquering this desert nation.(AP Photo/Rukmini Callimachi)
