Manuscripts

Control of Kidal's airport comes a day after Malian troops entered historic Timbuktu after French forces encircled the city and seized its airport. A "treasure" of ancient manuscripts in the city, designated as a World Heritage Site in 1990, may have survived a fire caused by fighting between the French and the insurgents.
