Reconstruction of Timbuktu tombs begins in Mali

“Malian masons on Friday began rebuilding mausoleums in the historic city of Timbuktu destroyed by Islamists during their occupation of the country’s north, the United Nations said. The earthen tombs of saints, located in the Unesco-listed desert city, were destroyed in July 2012 by militants who considered the local Sufi version of Islam to be idolatrous.”
