MALI-CONFLICT

A man walks through the Ahmed Baba institute of higher learning and islamic research in Timbuktu on January 29, 2013. French-led forces seized yesterday Mali's fabled desert city of Timbuktu in a lightning advance north as fleeing Islamists torched the building housing priceless ancient manuscripts. Mayor Ousmane confirmed the fire at the Ahmed Baba Centre which housed between 60,000 and 100,000 manuscripts, according to Mali's culture ministry.
