Jihadis support Mali rebels

The leader of the Al Qaeda affiliated group in Northern Mali has put his fighters “at the disposal of Ansar Dine rebels seeking to impose Islamic law”…

“Fighters should impose sharia only gradually and look to collaborate, not clash, with separatist rebels also operating in Mali’s north”…

The cleric, “called on AQIM fighters to “practice all their field activities concerning the sharia-implementation project in the Azawad region under the cover of (Ansar Dine) and keep the cover of (AQIM) limited to our activities in the global jihad”…

“With Mali’s military and political leaders still bickering over who should run the country…there are fears that Mali’s north is turning into a safe haven for Islamist militant groups and international criminals.”
