Islamic Preacher’s Violent Turn Shows Threat to West Africa

“Before Ibrahim Malam Dicko became Burkina Faso’s first-ever Islamist militant leader, his sermons were so popular that listeners thronged to the radio station that broadcast them to obtain the recordings. Today, the mosque in northern Djibo province where the slight, unimposing man used to preach is closed, and the mud-brick walls of his village’s school are riddled with bullet holes. Hundreds of people have fled the area as soldiers in military trucks hunt the West African nation’s most wanted man, who’s known simply as Malam, or teacher.”
