Mali: After the fall of Timbuktu (part 2)

  • Gregory Mann, Professor of History, Columbia University;
  • Adam Thiam, Columnist at newspaper Le Républicain (from Bamako, Mali);
  • Melissa Bell, France24 Senior Correspondent (from Bamako, Mali);
  • Gilles Yabi, Director of West Africa Program, International Crisis Group (from Dakar, Senegal).
