Happy Malians and the dead jihadis: the ‘disgusting but wonderful’ war in photos
IN Mali, the fighting is brutal:
The crowd gawked at human torso remains lying in the rubble, along with other fragments of flesh. “It’s disgusting but wonderful to see. These people tortured us, they did nothing but damage here,” said Mahamane Tandina, 24, cheered on by the crowd. “We like this, frankly,” he said with a smile.
In this Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012 photo, local residents, including many children, look on as Islamist group Ansar Dine prepares to amputate the hand of a young man found guilty of stealing rice, in Timbuktu, Mali. In a report launched Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012, Amnesty International says it has documented 'horrific abuses' against civilians in Islamist-controlled northern Mali, including the recruitment of child soldiers, sexual violence, extra-judicial executions, and seven amputations just since August.
