[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] More than 15,000 tourists visited the UNESCO World Heritage town of Djenne, famous for its Grand Mosque - pictured November 21, 2012 - until a spate of kidnappings and a rebellion in the north of Mali put the country off limits to most visitors. Djenne's sister settlement at Timbuktu was captured by the Islamist groups Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQMI) and Ansar Dine, until an abrupt French military intervention in January 2013 repulsed them from the major population centres.
