In 2012 and 2013, Mali's cultural heritage, including its ancient manuscripts, was severely damaged

With the armed conflict that occurred between 2012 and 2013, Mali's cultural heritage, including its ancient manuscripts, was severely damaged. In Timbuktu, many valuable manuscripts were burned or stolen, forcing their owners, communities and local NGOs to send them to Bamako, the capital of the country, in the most precarious conditions.
