Millions Needed to Save Mali’s Damaged Cultural Heritage

Having been severely damaged by Islamist militants, Mali's ancient city of Timbuktu will require about $11 million to salvage. “What has been destroyed has been destroyed definitively. It is a part of us that's gone and we need to recharge ourselves, morally speaking, to come to terms with what has happened," Mali’s Minister of Culture Bruno Maiga reportedly said.
