Mali Al Qaidas Sahara Playbook

Mali Al Qaidas Sahara Playbook

In this Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013 photo, neighborhood resident Mohamed Alassane walks past 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. 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)
