    AFRICANGLOBE – Damage to Timbuktu’s cultural heritage after the attack on the city by Arab and Tuareg invaders is more extensive than first estimated. A United Nations-led team gave a bleak assessment of the city’s artifacts following a recent visit to the fabled city.
    Lazare Eloundou Assomo of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) World Heritage Centre said the destruction is “even more alarming than we thought.”
