The destruction of Timbuktu (part 2)

Destroying the great shrines of Timbuktu is Ansar Dine’s way of telling the local population that they are eradicating the old order and starting fresh. François Picard’s panellists warn, however, of a backlash against Ansar Dine and those who supply them across the border in Algeria, but not before a long process.
