· Controlled by Islamic extremists for months in the northern part of the country ·
For months Christians have been fleeing the northern part of Mali from Islamic fundamentalists. The alarm was sounded by the Algerian daily El Khabar which clearly described how 200,000 people have taken refugee in camps largely in Mauritania and Algeria. These camps have already welcomed tens of thousands of refugees and displaced persons due to the conflict in recent months with the Tuareg. For weeks in the State of Azawad, Christians controlled by Salafist extremists linked to Al Qaeda, are fleeing violence which day after day is more concerning.
