Mali Islamists warned about Sharia in al-Qaeda ‘manifesto’

“A ‘manifesto’ left by Islamists in Mali indicates that disagreements between them may have led to their defeat – so far – on the battlefield. The document, published by a French newspaper, is said to contain advice by the head of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Abdel Malek Droukdel. It criticises militants in Mali for implementing Islamic law too quickly and predicts France’s intervention. The document was found by journalists in Timbuktu, northern Mali.”
