Fighters of the Islamic group Ansar Dine at the Kidal Airport in northern Mali“Yacouba Toure, number two in the Ansar Dine of the South terrorist group, was arrested on Thursday outside Bamako,” a security source told AFP. The arrest follows that of Souleymane Keita, described as the top jihadist leader in southern Mali, in March. Keita has been linked to the Ansar Dine group, which was one of three Islamist factions that conquered vast swathes of the country’s north in 2012 before being repelled by French troops.
