Islamism in Mali.

The New York Times:

The jihadists are even attempting to sell the former criminal courts building in Gao, Mr. Sidibé said, because they no longer have any use for it. In Timbuktu, justice is dispensed from a room in a former hotel.

The U.N. Security Council has authorized military action (made up of West African troops) into Northern Mali to root out the Islamists.
