This week, The Take is reporting from Mali’s new front, where an absent government is letting old rivalries flare. Groups like al-Qaeda are fuelling the fire and a major UN peacekeeping mission is unable to stop the unprecedented violence.
Priyanka Tilve produced this episode with Alexandra Locke, Morgan Waters, Amy Walters, Ney Alvarez and Malika Bilal. Seth Samuel was the sound designer. Natalia Aldana is the social media producer. Graelyn Brashear is Al Jazeera’s Head of Audio.
Special thanks to Nicolas Haque, Eva Kasprowicz and Rachid Mkansi.
