AQIM claims Mali suicide attack

“Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) on Monday (September 30th) claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing that killed two civilians and injured six soldiers in Timbuktu, Alakhbar reported. The Saturday attack in Mali came less than a week after AQIM named Algerian national Said Abou Moughatil to replace slain commander Abdelhamid Abou Zeid as head of the Tariq Ibn Ziyad katibat. Abou Zeid (real name Mohamed Ghadir) was credited with expanding the terrorist group’s field of operations to Tunisia and Niger, and for kidnapping activities across the region.”
