In Search of Monsters: What are they doing in Mali?
War and religion have become a sustainable way of life for them, as they have for the battle-tested combatants of various katibas who are also turning a profit as hostage-takers and moon-cursers across the Sahara. The caravans of rock salt and gold that cross these wastes are being replaced by convoys of land cruisers loaded with cigarettes, weapons and drugs; the traffic in slaves has been superseded by the traffic in hostages. Faith and business make a perfect match. The mastermind of the operation at In Amenas, AQIM’s Mokhtar Belmokhtar, is known as ‘Mr Marlboro’. Even the incandescent zealot Abou Zeid, AQIM’s other major warlord in Mali, is a Taliban by day and a smuggler at night.

Mali: Waiting for the Storm
funnily enough I read the subtitle (Waiting for the Rain) as Waiting for the Ruin. Either way I have a severe case of afro-pessimism.

Tuaregs Use Qaddafi’s Arms for Rebellion in Mali
Extremely poor reporting: "In life he backed African insurgencies in Chad, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe."
Such a list doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of He of the little Green Book's meddling in Africa. No mention of Sierra Leone, Liberia, No mention of support for coups in Gambia, Burkina Faso, Ghana and so forth...

Rokia Traoré has no desire to be confined by genre
un certain regard... “Some Europeans who love Africa love it for exoticism,” she says. “Anything modern doesn’t interest them. I don’t know why they don’t realise that the traditional and the modern can exist alongside each other. I think they have an image of Africa which they don’t want to change. It’s horrible. It’s the same all over Europe, but France is the worst because here there’s that pretension of knowing Africa.

Mali’s Farmers Discover a Weed’s Potential Power
Black Gold in Mali. It's all about the new formula. Countries like India, China, the Philippines and Malaysia are starting huge plantations, betting that jatropha will help them to become more energy independent and even export biofuel.
